Welcome to UW-Whitewater

At the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater you’ll find two campuses with plenty of room to learn, grow and thrive. Warhawks enjoy the bragging rights of paying less — our combined tuition, room/board and fees is the lowest of four-year campuses in the UW System. And that tremendous value comes with the full-on college experience: more than 11,000 students, a complete range of academic programs and caring faculty and staff dedicated to student success. Thinking of transferring? Transfer students make up more than 20% of our freshman class.

We are a College of Distinction for our business, education and career development programs as well as our commitment to equity and inclusion. New majors include legal studies and cybersecurity, and computer science is now a top-10 major. Our Warhawks graduate career-ready: 99% are employed in their field or in graduate school post-graduation.

And do you like to win? Our championship tradition extends from our NCAA Division III athletics and the celebrated Warhawk Marching Band to our award-winning American Marketing Association, Enactus, forensics and media arts and game development teams.

Our students don’t just graduate — they take wing. We couldn’t be more proud of our graduating students and what they have achieved — from internships to study abroad experiences to that first job offer, accepted even before graduation.
