Since 1889, the University of Idaho has been a place that expects more from itself, more from its students, more from knowledge and more from life. We offer a distinctive combination of outstanding majors and graduate programs, accomplished faculty, world-class facilities, renowned research and a residential campus in a spectacular natural setting. It's no wonder we're ranked among the top national universities in the country (U.S. News & World Report). We're also one of the best values in higher education (The Princeton Review). There's no better place to learn, think and live than the University of Idaho. Expect more from a leading university. We'll deliver.
The University of Idaho is leading the West by providing you access to exceptional learning opportunities, world-class facilities and an unparalleled residential community. Our campus in Moscow, Idaho, provides daily opportunities to share in our community and culture. Whether it's through athletics, student government, research or other activities, at the University of Idaho you have the opportunity to make more out of your college experience than you ever thought possible.
Here are some of the key ingredients to our distinctive campus community and culture:
Just minutes away from the forests, mountains, rivers and lakes of Northern Idaho, Moscow is home to more than 24,000 residents and a wide range of student-minded businesses, such as you would only find in a university town.
Art galleries, movie theaters, coffee shops and restaurants line the streets. Moscow offers a huge co-op with organic and natural foods that is a gathering place for the community, Northwest-style pubs, as well as locally-owned Italian, French, Mexican and Chinese eateries.
An Outdoor Enthusiast's Dream:
We're ranked as one of the "Top 40 schools where you can hit the books and the backcountry" by Outside Magazine. Living and learning in Moscow will put you just minutes from opportunities for skiing, snowboarding, whitewater rafting, biking, climbing, fishing, camping and more.
A Commitment to the Arts:
The Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, which received the 2007 National Medal of Arts, brings some of the world’s best jazz artists to campus, along with 20,000 visitors each year. The Kenworthy Performing Arts Center, Moscow ARTWALK, Rendezvous In The Park, and Third Street Gallery are just another few examples of why Moscow is recognized for its dedication to the arts.
A Natural Environment Like No Other:
Situated between Moscow Mountain and the rolling hills of the Palouse, Moscow's natural surroundings provide an international hub for environmental, ecological and agricultural research. Students in the College of Natural Resources and College of Science, among others, regularly get out and explore the natural world beyond the classroom through field trips.
A Tightly-Knit Community:
People gather at the Farmers Market weekly May through October. The Renaissance Fair, a Moscow favorite, celebrates the arrival of spring with artists, crafters, live music and international foods. Each fall, members of the community come together at the Latah County Fair. The city's nearly two dozen parks provide space to enjoy the outdoors within a small-town setting.
