Welcome to UW–Madison. Where stunning lakeside views meet vibrant streetscapes. Where a sizable city feels like a small community. Where academic possibilities meet real-world opportunities. Where the guiding principle is public service. Where a university and city blend together, creating an atmosphere unlike anywhere else. Welcome to your future home.
The University of Wisconsin–Madison rests in the ancestral land of the Ho-Chunk Nation, the People of the Big Voice, who have called this place Teejop (day-JOPE) for time immemorial. As a university community we continue to create and build upon our partnerships with the 12 First Nations of Wisconsin. As a state university we respect the inherent sovereignty and unique legal status, as affirmed and set forth in state and federal law, of the First Nations of Wisconsin.
