Unique Blend of Western Hospitality and Sophistication 

Nestled between two mountain ranges in southeastern Wyoming, Laramie is a town of 30,000, with a unique blend of western hospitality and sophistication. Browse through historic downtown, dine in one of our fine restaurants, relax in a coffeehouse, check out a museum or gallery, or take in the Wyoming Territorial Prison State Historic Site, which preserves one of only two territorial prisons still in existence. Summers offer the excitement of Laramie Jubilee Days celebration and a weekly, seasonal Farmers' Market.

The nearby Medicine Bow National Forest and Rocky Mountains provide quick access to hiking, biking, fishing, hunting, or camping. Within 20 minutes, you can take on a challenging mountain bike ride, Nordic ski trail, or scale the massive granite monoliths of the Vedauwoo formation. Dive into great Rocky Mountain powder on the slopes of the Snowy Range Ski Area, just 45 minutes from campus. 

Denver is less than two-and-a-half hours away and offers shopping, concerts, theatre, professional sporting events, and international flight connections.
