Living in the UW-Green Bay Community

Everyone knows that Green Bay is known for Lambeau Field and the Packers, but the city also thrives with other professional and recreational sports, high-tech industry and manufacturing, and a wide range of opportunities in the arts.

UW-Green Bay enjoys a park-like setting overlooking Lake Michigan's bay of Green Bay. At roughly one square mile, the campus is among the largest in the state. Much of the acreage is devoted to natural areas, with the central campus bordered on one side by the bay and on the other by the heavily wooded Niagara Escarpment. About 2000 students live on campus. Students find an abundance of leisure-time options, including NCAA Division I athletics and performances by big-name entertainers at the Weidner Center and Kress Events Center. Leadership opportunities exist through the Student Government Association. The student Good Times Programming Board provides social, cultural, recreational and educational programming. Students find recent Hollywood blockbusters and college classics on the popular film series, and acts including comedians, hypnotists and up-and-coming bands on the concert calendar. More than 125 clubs and organizations focus on special interests.
