Off campus housing for UWM can be found just north of downtown Milwaukee. Bike for only a few minutes and you can arrive right at the coast of Lake Michigan! UWM has some excellent academic programs, particularly their Architecture, Nursing, Business, Education, and Information Science departments. The professors are adept in their fields, and known for being dedicated to their students. The academic culture here is highly research-oriented, meaning students get lots of hands-on experience in their fields.
The most beloved and highly esteemed sports teams at UWM are The Badgers, one for football and the other for basketball. The games are always filled with excitement and cheer from UWM students. Of course, be sure not to miss out on the soccer games, either. They’re just as fun to watch (for free!)
Students here will venture out into Milwaukee’s rich nightlife on weekends, but during the week, most choose to study or participate in various clubs.
