Warhawk Shuttle
Warhawk Shuttle
The free Warhawk Shuttle that runs between UW-Whitewater and UW-Whitewater at Rock County opens doors to students, faculty and staff on both campuses. It’s a safe, convenient way for URock students to live in residence halls and for Janesville area students to get to the Whitewater campus. And for some students, it makes all the difference between going to college or not.
