About UW Oshkosh

Opportunity of Place

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh has a unique advantage being located in the highly populated northeast Wisconsin region. The region provides limitless opportunities for internships, employment, community service and research for students. The city of Oshkosh provides an urban setting with many amenities, making it a great place to live, work and play.


Be a part of something bigger than yourself. The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is ranked third in the country for its work in sustainability. This foundational element for UW Oshkosh is infused in our curriculum, our daily lives and demonstrates internationally what a university can do to change the world.


UW Oshkosh delivers a student-centered education that is not commonly associated with regional comprehensive universities – providing a full range of undergraduate and graduate research opportunities. Faculty members have strong research and publishing credentials while keeping their teaching a top priority.

General Education for the 21st Century

The newly launched general education at UW Oshkosh provides students with an assessable, common intellectual experience that also embraces the traditional breadth of a liberal arts education to prepare them for the challenges of work, engaged citizenship and a meaningful and satisfying life.  The new University Studies Program is being looked at nationally as a new model for general education in this country.

Students at the Heart of All That We Do

Students are at the heart of all that we do. UW Oshkosh provides a hands-on, collaborative academic experience, promoting discovery in a community that celebrates inclusive excellence, fuels imagination, and champions critical thinking and opportunity in a supportive and caring environment. With a campus big enough to provide opportunity but small enough to provide support, student success is at the heart of all we do.
