Moscow Community

Just minutes away from the spectacular forests, rivers and lakes of northern Idaho, the Palouse region, which was featured in National Geographic magazine, is a remarkable area of rolling hills, and a quick drive from some of the best skiing, hiking, and camping that the Pacific Northwest has to offer.

Moscow hosts a population of more than 21,000 residents and a wide range of student-minded businesses. The eclectic downtown provides students with access to art galleries, movie theaters, coffee shops, boutiques, and delicious local restaurants. In addition to popular drive-thrus, Moscow also offers a huge co-op with organic and natural foods; Northwest-style pubs; as well as locally owned Italian, French, Mexican and Chinese eateries. 

An Outdoor Enthusiast's Dream

Outside magazine ranked the University of Idaho as one of the top 30 "great university to hit the books and backcountry" in the nation. Living and learning in Moscow will put you just minutes from adventure and exploration.

Settled between Moscow Mountain and the rolling hills of the Palouse, Moscow's natural surroundings provide an international hub for environmental, ecological and agricultural research.

Students in the College of Natural Resources and College of Science, among others, regularly get out and explore the natural world beyond the classroom through field trips.

A Commitment to the Arts

The Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, a university signature event, received the 2007 National Medal of Arts. The festival brings some of the world’s best jazz artists, along with 20,000 visitors each year. The Moscow ARTWALK, Fresh Aire Concert Series and Third Street Gallery are just another few examples of why Moscow is recognized for its dedication to the arts.

A Tight-Knit Community

The city of Moscow has many events and activities that bring residents together. One local favorite is the annual Renaissance Fair which celebrates the arrival of spring with artists, crafters, live music and international foods.
