About This CampusThe University of Wyoming, established in 1886 and still the only 4-year university in Wyoming, is a land-grant institution where innovative research and the pursuit of academic excellence take place within a safe, close-knit community. Just like the state of Wyoming, UW is both big and small. Wyoming, known worldwide for its beauty, is full of wide-open spaces and magnificent mountain ranges, and UW echoes these spaces in the scope of its innovation, its energetic ambition to better the global community, and its world-class facilities. Although Wyoming is the 10th-largest state in the USA, it has the smallest population, creating tight-knit communities around the state that band together for progress. In the same way, students and faculty at UW work together towards a greater future, meeting in small classes and enjoying a 14:1 student-to-faculty ratio.
Location InformationThe University of Wyoming is located in the beautiful college town of Laramie, Wyoming, nestled between two mountain ranges. Laramie is home to 31,000 people, providing a welcoming, friendly and safe community for international students. Throughout the year the Laramie community is supportive of UW students. The city sponsors several fun events including pep rallies, concerts and outdoor adventures. Wyoming is famous for endless recreational opportunities, including Yellowstone National Park.
