University Of Wyoming
The heart and pride of Laramie is the University of Wyoming. Whether you are here as a prospective student, a proud alumnus, a Wyoming sports fan, or just a casual visitor, we hope you take a little time to tour the beautiful University campus during your visit.
The University of Wyoming was founded in 1886, and is Wyoming's only four-year institution of higher education. Each year it welcomes over 14,000 students from all 50 states and 90 countries, making Laramie the melting pot of culture and bustling activity we love.
Affectionately called "UW" (You-Dubb), the University boasts over 80 undergraduate programs, small student-to-faculty ratios, and is one of the most affordable education experiences in the nation. Add to that the plethora of outdoor recreation here in Laramie, and you have a recipe for an unforgettable college experience.
Each weekend during the school year, Laramie is bustling with fans who come from far-flung communities statewide to watch Division I sports here on campus as part of the Mountain West Conference.
With the vibrant student population, you can be sure to find something entertaining on campus any day. Check the events calendar during your visit for symphony performances, live concerts, modern dance recitals, art exhibitions, and more.
Whether or not you catch an event, touring campus is a must for any visit. Spend a little time lounging in Simpson plaza, catch a bite to eat in the Wyoming Union, and spend a little time exploring one of the University's seven museums to dive into Wyoming history, art, education, and more.
