A lovely campus, walking distance from many great downtown venues, restaurants and museums. An excellent academic institution with beautiful grounds and very friendly staff and students. The Joan of Arc chapel is lovely and a great spot for photos.

Visit here to meet the students. Long ago my father graduated from Marquette's dental school so I visited to see the new facility they built (in 2002). Walked here down WI Avenue from downtown, passing a few comatose folks on the sidewalk. But was greeted at the campus's map posting by a passing student that went out of his way... More

Not one of our Top 20 rated (by us) beautiful campuses, but it is quaint. People are very friendly. It is well laid out, but divided by city streets. Quite clean, but not real quiet.

It's not the same old Marquette! This school is now an urban gem and an integral part of the downtown scene. Don't miss the Joan of Arc Chapel, Gesu o0r the art gallery - all are must see when you are in Milwaukee.

Smaller, private Jesuit university in a downtown setting. Strong reputation for both its undergrad and graduate programs. Top notch dental school.

Growing up on a farm in Illinois, it was a definite change to go to school in such a urban setting. It was a great life experience

This is a school with a solid reputation right near downtown. Mostly it does not impede traffic. Beautiful campus.

Located adjacent to the immediate downtown area, Marquette University offers a unique visual experience for both local and long-distance travelers. The architecture is rather unique (all of the buildings are different) and provide good insight to the historical aspects of Marquette. The Joan of Arc chapel, Gesu church, the Law building, Raynor library, the Alumni Memorial, as well as the... More

Visited for my son's graduation from Engineering School, there was great attention to detail for every event which included, graduation from department and mass on Saturday, and Commencement on Sunday - all on time, and beautifully orchestrated.
