Each year, almost 13,000 students from across the country and across the globe begin or continue their education at the University of Wyoming. They do so for many different reasons. Some find the combination of large university benefits perfectly matched with the feel of a smaller college, some enjoy the recreational and scenic opportunities that come from the surrounding Rocky Mountain region. Others find value in our competitive tuition costs and amazing scholarship programs. Others find safety and comfort that comes with living and learning in the community of Laramie.
