The Rocky Mountain and prairie state of Wyoming offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the western United States and one of the lowest population densities; in an area of 98,000 square miles (about the size of western Germany), there are a little more than 500,000 residents. Large parts of western Wyoming are taken up by two magnificent national parks, Yellowstone and Grand Teton. The university is located in Laramie in the southeastern part of the state. UW is less than an hour's drive from trout streams, glacial lakes, rock climbing and skiing areas. To get a better idea of what the campus is like, take a virtual tour.
