Pioneers are proud of our Carroll University community. 85% of Carroll students live on or within our campus community. Because of this, your friends and classmates will live, study, eat, and play in the same locations that you do. As an international student this means that Carroll University will truly feel like your home away from home.

Our campus features seamless transitions between historic academic buildings, state-of-the-art research facilities, and modern residence halls. Carroll is located in a historic residential area of Waukesha, Wisconsin (population 71,000); just minutes outside of Milwaukee, and only two hours north of Chicago. We are uniquely positioned to provide students with access to an array of internships, clinical and student teaching opportunities as well as cultural and recreational activities.

For many of our international students, your first visit to our campus will be when you join us for International Student Orientation as you start your studies at Carroll. We know you will be surprised by our beautiful campus and welcoming community. Here are a few ways to explore our community before you arrive:
