The Badger Caring Closet’s mission is to serve students by providing a place for UW students to obtain daily necessities at no cost. The Badger Caring Closet is a private, safe environment and will be entirely confidential.

Where is it?

The Badger Caring Closet is located 325 N Mills St,  on the second floor of Lutheran Campus Ministry. The building is located between XO1 and the Brogden Psychology Building.

When can I go?

The Badger Caring Closet hours align with the hours of the Associated Students of Madison (ASM) food pantry, The Open Seat.  It is our hope that the same population who utilize The Open Seat will also utilize the Badger Caring Closet.  The Closet will be open for service at the following times each week, beginning in Spring of 2017:

Sunday 1:30p.m.-5:00p.m.
Tuesday 4:00p.m.-7:00p.m.
Wednesday 6:00p.m.-8:30p.m.

If you are unable to make the set hours, we will work with you to find an alternate time! Please email us at to set up a time that is convenient for you.
