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 the four-year campuses in Wisconsin. That low cost combined with our stellar outcomes — Warhawks graduate career-ready, with 99% employed in their field or in graduate school post-graduation — earned us the affordability badge from the Colleges of Distinction.

At UW-Whitewater, tremendous value comes with a full-on college experience: more than 11,000 students, a complete range of academic programs and caring faculty and staff dedicated to student success.

We are a College of Distinction for our business, education and career development programs as well as our commitment to inclusivity. New majors include legal studies and cybersecurity, and computer science is now a top-10 major.

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.
