This is the library mall at the University of Wisconsin-Madison main campus. Located in the heart of the campus its a great place to meet friends. If you've got some studying to do, the library is clean, quiet and enormous.

This is a great place to be! My wife and I live right next to the medical school where she is a student. Can’t beat the walkability of the campus either. Great place for strong academics and athletics.

Even when campus is dead, there is something to do. It's beautiful inside and out. Walk around and never enter a building or take the time to enter them and see what is going on. Some have water walls, or zen bathrooms. Museums and artifacts...More

Received very personalized attention for such a large University. The guides were all really willing to answer questions. Great to have a University right on the lake. My son loved the ice cream they make there. I was impressed.

A great place to take folks from out of town. Lots of variety with something of interest for anyone.

It was good to return for a visit to the University of Wisconsin. It seemed like a vast campus back in the day I studied there, but now it has really grown. It is still well kept, attractive buildings and lots for students to do.
