In and out of the classroom, our students seize opportunities to make a difference -- in their own lives and in the lives of others. This is a university where students come first, and our professors love to teach. This is a university where a student organization represents just about any possible interest. This is a university that is committed to developing global citizens. The percentage of students who study abroad is higher here than on any other campus in the UW System.

Because of UWSP’s central location, students are very much a part of the city of Stevens Point as soon as they come to campus. Residence halls and nearby student apartments and rooming houses blend into the community.
In addition, the local economy depends on UWSP students as part-time employees. Police, fire department, hospital, county library, shopping, and the riverfront all are within easy access. A safe city with a low crime rate, Stevens Point provides a secure haven for its student residents.
