UW-Oshkosh Plans to Close Fox Cities Campus

Add UW-Oshkosh to the growing list of UW schools that are losing their branch campuses. 

UW-O yesterday said it will close its Fox Cities campus in Menasha at the end of the next school year. University leaders say it’s a tough but necessary decision to try and pull Oshkosh out of an 18 million-dollar budget deficit.  There were just over 500 students at the Fox Cities campus back in the fall, down from over 16 hundred in 2018. 

Reaction was swift from Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson, who slammed the decision yesterday, accusing UW leaders of betraying the trust of students and the community in Menasha.
