Where and how should I fill out the census?

Despite the disruption of campus life due to COVID-19, UW-Madison is still working to help students meet their obligation to be counted in the 2020 Census.

Every ten years, the Census Bureau collects a count of all U.S. residents and information about them based on where they live. It is important that everyone is counted at the address where they reside for the majority of the year, because this helps determine the allocation of millions of federal and state dollars to our community.
