Rice Lake Campus

Rice Lake

1900 College Drive, Rice Lake, WI 54868


The largest city in the county, Rice Lake has a small-town feel with the big-city benefits of commerce, manufacturing, health and education. This Wisconsin Northwoods area has something for everyone–great fishing, hiking, biking and ATVing, as well as shopping, dining, live theater and more.

Campus Life

The campus is centrally located in Rice Lake, yet it's just enough removed from the city to be nestled along the Red Cedar River. Found directly in the Rice Lake campus's backyard is the Cedar Side Walking Trail, which follows the Red Cedar River for 3.5 miles where eagles, deer and other wildlife visit regularly. Across from the parking lot is Rice Lake's 18-hole disc golfing course which brings you through meadows, forestry and along the Red Cedar River. The campus is centrally located to theaters, trails, restaurants and is just east of the Blue Hills, a rolling deciduous forest cut by streams. 

Prospective students are welcomed from the moment they walk in the door, and as you walk down the halls, the friendly staff know you by name. Students have the opportunity to participate in clubs, such as Student Senate, CAB and program-specific clubs. CAB hosts regular activity hours that bring musicians, virtual reality tours and a wide-variety of things to do for Northwood Tech's student body.
