The Technology Park & “Certified In Wisconsin” Sites
The 130-acre Whitewater University Technology Park was designed with expansion, relocation and business needs in mind. The Whitewater University Technology Park Board of Directors oversees the development of the technology park.
The 35-acre parcel directly east of the Whitewater University Innovation Center is "Certified in Wisconsin." With approval from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, this designation indicates that the site meets particular criteria pertaining to infrastructure, transportation, environmental, and other factors. The development-ready site has 12 building sites ready for construction with all utilities included and state-of-the-art technology infrastructure in place.
The mission of the Whitewater University Technology Park is to create and foster durable businesses and jobs through a close alignment of UW-Whitewater’s research and educational competencies and the resources of the City of Whitewater. The Technology Park serves as a foundation for a diversified and robust regional economy through the attraction of new residents, utilization of UW-Whitewater faculty, staff and student expertise and the retention of alumni talent.
Whitewater is conveniently located less than two miles from U.S. Highway 12, approximately 50 miles from Madison and Milwaukee, and just 80 miles from Chicago. The city is also at the epicenter of Wisconsin's population density, with close proximity to other population centers such as suburban Milwaukee, Madison, Racine, Kenosha, Janesville, and Rockford, IL.
