What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
Platteville is perfect for anyone who wants a great education in a fun place without being overwhelmed by a city. It's a small campus in a small town, so don't expect the UW - Madison experience. That being said, UW- Platteville is an excellent place to experience college and spend 4 (or more) great years.
Nicole from Hortonville, WI
UWPlatteville is a very well rounded school. It is a school that has intelligent professors who are very willing to help you. This school also has a beautiful campus with many things to do to keep students busy and out of trouble.
