Notary Services

For notarization of personal, non-business related documents, please see below regarding off-campus notaries.  The Office of Legal Affairs is unable to notarize any documentation that is not University business related.

The Office of Legal Affairs provides notary services in connection with official University of Wisconsin-Madison business.  Notary services are available by appointment only. Please contact our office at 608-263-7400 to arrange a document notarization by a member of our staff.

As required by state law, please bring your photo identification. Please ensure all documents are entirely filled out prior to coming in for a notarization. If you have questions regarding the documents, you must refer to your home department, as OLA cannot advise on the content of the documents.
