About Eau Claire

Our home is your home.

Eau Claire is not only a great college town, it's an All-America City! It's recognized among the top 10 cities in the nation. When you come to UW-Eau Claire you join a community beyond campus. Our partnerships with business, industry and local organizations provide internship, job and volunteer opportunities for you. Some 67,500 residents live, work, and play in Western Wisconsin's largest city.

From campus you're within walking distance of two popular shopping districts with coffee shops, art galleries, live music and parks to explore. Movie theaters, chain restaurants, athletic clubs and performing arts venues provide plenty to do and see nearby. It's easy to get around in this bike-friendly community and the city transit system is free with your Blugold ID.
