Science Wing

If you dream of a career in the sciences, then you’ll be amazed by the labs and facilities on the Fox Cities campus. UWO offers coursework in biology, botany, chemistry, geosciences, physics, astronomy, and zoology — to name a few.

The science wing features several “breakout areas,” where students can study and engage with professors, whose offices are located immediately off the breakout areas. The many labs in the science wing provide opportunities for students to dive deeper into areas of study and offer hands-on experience that lays the critical foundation for a career in science. 

Communication Arts Center

If you’re inspired by fine and performing arts, you’ll be blown away by the Communications Arts Center — also known as the CAC. The CAC is a beacon of creative activity for students and community members alike.

Students have the opportunity to get involved in theatre arts, band and choir, and visual arts as well. This venue attracts talent from across the nation with musical performances and community theatre productions in Perry Hall, as well as visiting artist talks and art exhibitions in the Aylward gallery.

Fox’s Den and Student Union

As a college student, there will be times you spend your entire day on campus. Thankfully, there’s designated a space for students to kick back, relax and take a break from classes. The Fox’s Den is a café where students can grab breakfast, lunch and snacks throughout the day.

This area also features a game room, outdoor patio space, and the student union where large gatherings, club meetings and other student activities take place. Some of the most common advice students give to incoming freshman is to get involved on campus, so you’ll be spending lots of time here! 

Sports Clubs and Fitness

Healthy bodies support healthy minds. There are plenty of ways you can get active right here on campus. The fitness center is free and open to all students, offering a variety of exercise equipment and free weights. Students also have access to the spacious indoor fieldhouse for pickup games and other recreational activities.

In terms of athletics, you can compete as a Fox Cities Campus Cyclone in one of the many sports clubs offered for students, including men’s and women’s basketball, women’s volleyball, soccer, golf and tennis. Teams compete against the other UWO campuses and a select campuses within the UW System. 


College-level work requires advanced resources. That’s why the library is the No. 1 place for students to study and work on assignments. In addition to the helpful staff and resources within the library, you’ll have access to an electronic journal collection of more than 50,000 titles and borrowing privileges across the entire UW System.

The library is broken up into three environments: quiet study area for solo work, group study area for class projects, and private study rooms for a distraction-free atmosphere. Within the library is a computer lab with computers equipped with Microsoft Office software, the Adobe Suite, other course-specific applications, and printers and scanners.
