Marquette University is the perfect setting for a city school. The entire campus is centralized within Milwaukee. Students enjoy the excitement of city life, yet have a strong sense of community.

We loved many things about this - very pretty campus that is quiet, despite having one of the busiest streets in Milwaukee carve it in half. If you like historic churches, there is a St. Joan of Arc chapel nestled in a gorgeous garden, inside the campus. Great tour guides as well.

I have probably known about Marquette for over 57 years and had no idea that it was as urban as it is. There is not a lot of green space as is found on most college campuses. It is, virtually, in downtown Milwaukee. Many of the buildings are on streets where the mansions of Milwaukee once stood. Pabst mansion is... More

As a student, I loved this campus. The best attraction is in the inner courtyard, which is a quiet retreat from the busy street and has the beautiful St. Joan of Arc chapel. The chapel was dismantled in France and shipped to Marquette to be reconstructed. It is well worth the visit to see the chapel.

This is not a review of Marquette itself, but of the tour my daughter took as a prospective student. Marquette is one of the schools my daughter is thinking of applying to so we signed up on Marquette's web site to take a tour of the school. When we arrived for the tour, my daughter received a book of very... More

Marquette is an urban campus in Milwaukee. A recent as the 1990s, it was surrounded by crime ridden slums. Fortunately, the administration wised-up and started buying up surrounding properties, tore down old buildings and put up some yuppie condos. The campus itself is a lot of architecturally incompatible buildings, but the library and art gallery are nice. The oasis of... More

I had to park on top floor of parking lot and walk two long blocks. If there were not any elevators, I remembered 911 and doubted if I could get down all those steps and not be out of breath. It was in the 50's too and cold.

One of the oldest buildings in the U.S. The chapel was brought over from France and reconstructed many years ago. Its provence is circa 1300. A lovely calm oasis to pray or meditate

Visited here during a conference. The campus is beautiful, within minutes of driving distance from the heart of downtown. Even though it was summer, there were a lot of people walking around. There is plenty of on-street parking around the campus, with a small fee. The staff was very friendly when I asked for directions around the campus.

Great urban university. Athletic fields are across the street from a slaughter house so the smell is not very pleasant. you do get used to it though. Several buildings have incredible charm and history to them. acedemics are incredibly strong.
