The campus

The 40-acre (16.2 ha) campus, located on the south side of the city near Silver Creek Park and on the shore of Lake Michigan, was opened in 1962.[1] The campus has seen two major additions: Hillside Hall (originally named West Hall) was opened in 1986, Lakeside Hall, which houses the theatre and music departments, was added in 2001. The University Theatre Company performs in this venue. The original building is now named Founders Hall.

Lakeside Hall features a 350-seat theatre, with an orchestra pit behind the stage and state-of-the-art sound, lighting and acoustic systems. It is used for plays, concerts and lectures. Additionally, the main academic lecture hall has been relocated to Hillside Hall from the original building.

The current Dean of the campus is Dr. Charles E. Clark.

The current Assistant Campus Dean for Student Services is George Henze.


The UW–Manitowoc Blue Devils compete in the East Division of the Wisconsin Collegiate Conference. The program offers intercollegiate athletic opportunities in co-ed golf, as well as men's and women's basketball, tennis, and volleyball.
