Based in the picturesque town of Laramie, the University of Wyoming provides a safe and welcoming environment for students. In fact, Laramie was voted the number one small college town in the USA.
Being nestled in between stunning mountains, holding the famous Yellowstone National Park and with 320 days of sunshine a year, Wyoming is the perfect place for outdoor adventure sports such as kayaking, cycling and climbing. Students can explore the local farmers market, go on unforgettable hikes, and attend a wide variety of festivals. No matter what time of year it is, there is always something to do.
The University of Wyoming is ranked in the top 100 public schools in the USA by U.S. News, and the 14:1 student to faculty ratio on offer at the institution means students have the opportunity to work closely with their teachers to develop their skills.
Research at the University of Wyoming is internationally-recognised. The facilities on offer reflect this, with the University holding a research aircraft, an Artificial Intelligence Lab and even a research station in Grand Teton National Park looking at ecosystems.
There are lots of ways to meet new people and stay active at UW. Students can join over 300 student organisations, and even utilise the University’s new USD 27 million sports facility that features a variety of indoor courts, a climbing wall, a swimming pool and much more.
University sport is taken very seriously at UW, with all the sports teams playing at the highest level possible for USA students, the NCAA Division 1. The Wyoming Cowboys American Football team play at the War Memorial Stadium which holds up to 29,000 spectators, and the basketball teams play at the Arena-Auditorium, holding 15,000.
