Welcome to Milwaukee

Milwaukee is a great combination of a big city and a small city. It has all the arts, culture, restaurants and big league sports of a big city, but fewer of the drawbacks, like traffic or pollution. Located in southeastern Wisconsin, the Milwaukee metropolitan area has approximately 1.7 million people, ranking it among the 30 largest cities in the United States.

You’ll always be able to find plenty to do in Milwaukee. For more information on what’s happening in Milwaukee:

Marquette Graduate students choose to live in a variety of places. It can be overwhelming to decide where to live in a new city. The Marquette Neighborhood surrounds campus, and here you'll find housing geared toward the Marquette student. River West is noted for its racial and cultural diversity, as well as the galleries, night clubs and locally-owned businesses that give it a bohemian flair. Many students choose to live in the lower East Side due to its proximity to the lakefront, night life, and ease of transportation. The village of Wauwatosa lies to the west of Marquette, and its charm is in its small town feel.
