Experience De Pere and Green Bay living

De Pere and Greater Green Bay are brimming with tons of off-campus recreation, entertainment and cultural possibilities.

Located on a bend of the Fox River, De Pere boasts gorgeous river views, boutique-style shopping, lively restaurants and many opportunities for outdoor recreation.

The Fox River Trail runs through the city and extends along the river through downtown Green Bay. The 25-mile trail is a haven for walkers, bicyclists, runners and rollerbladers. Walleye Anglers say we have some of the region’s best waters.

Visitors to the area believe we have some of the warmest, loyal people. We hope you agree.

We’re in the middle of it all

Five minutes north of De Pere, Green Bay is loaded with additional opportunity. If that doesn’t keep you busy, we are conveniently nestled just two hours from Milwaukee; two hours from Madison, Wisconsin; three hours from Chicago; and 4.5 hours from the Twin Cities in Minnesota. Austin Straubel International Airport is just 10 minutes from campus and is served by five major airlines.

One of the best places to live

Ranked third on U.S. News and World Report’s list of Best Places to Live in 2022-23, Green Bay scores high on affordability, quality of life, safety, desirability, job market and net migration.

In addition, the Greater Green Bay area has been named by America’s Promise Alliance as one of the 100 best communities in the U.S. for younger people.

No wonder many of our alumni find it hard to leave once they graduate!

Small city, big possibilities


Green Bay is just five miles north of De Pere, and it has all of the big-city amenities you’d expect along with a fun bonus: the iconic Lambeau Field, where the Green Bay Packers play.

Check out the maps and directions to see how well connected we are and find options for food, lodging and local attractions.
