Whitewater University Technology Park


Whitewater is a vibrant community that brings together a unique combination of university life and small-town hospitality. With assets including the  university of Wisconsin-Whitewater, employers have access to a youthful, educated population and a business community focused on growth. The Ice Age Trail is located just four miles to the east and extends for nearly 1,200 miles, from Minnesota to the shores of Lake Michigan, making Whitewater an appealing location both for companies and for the people they hire. Located on the border of Jefferson and Walworth Counties in southern Wisconsin, Whitewater provides convenient access to Interstate 90, connecting businesses to Madison (45 miles away), the Wisconsin/Illinois border (34 miles away), and Interstate 43, connecting businesses to Milwaukee (54 miles away). Residents and businesses also have easy access to Chicago, allowing for day trips to a larger metropolitan area. Whitewater has a population of over 14,000 people, with access to over 45,000 people within a 45-minute drive. The Whitewater University Technology Park is a 35-acre park located on the northeast side of the city. Close proximity to the Whitewater Innovation Center and UW-Whitewater allows businesses to tap into the innovation and creativity of a collegiate population and entrepreneurs in the area.
