As an urban research institution, UWM has a distinctive character that may not quite be traditional, but has a lot to offer the modern student.
Once known as the “Athens of the Midwest,” the city has outsized cultural, sports and entertainment opportunities — and, of course, more jobs than any other place in the state.
The best way to get a feel for the campus location, facilities and people is to come see for yourself.
