An affordable education is also closer than you might think. UWRF is located on 226 acres of rolling river land just 30 miles from downtown St. Paul and provides small town living with big city opportunities. Great teaching happens both inside and out of every classroom on our campus. With 100% of our classes taught by professors and lecturers, not teaching assistants, learning from expert sources is our standard. UWRF undergraduate students also have unmatched opportunities to do research with their professors or participate in study abroad opportunities.
