IV. 21 UW-MADISON DOMESTIC PARTNERSHIP POLICY
The UW-Madison Domestic Partnership Policy has been approved by governance bodies representing students, classified non-represented staff, academic staff, and faculty. As the Provost stated in his memo announcing the approval and implementation of the policy, "the intent...is to simplify and clarify the documentation necessary for domestic partners of UW-Madison students and employees to obtain access to services such as housing, recreational sports facilities, and libraries." The policy does not apply to benefits controlled by the state or the Board of Regents.
The policy (http://provost.wisc.edu/dpp.html) contains criteria for determining domestic partner status, instructions for accessing services (including a caveat that some units may require applicants to meet additional criteria), and a link to the Declaration of Domestic Partnership form. Services available through to domestic partners include the following:
