Our Community


Campbellsville, Kentucky is the largest community in Taylor County, the geographic heart of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

The university campus is centrally located with key businesses including restaurants, convenience and drug stores, a laundry mat, health food store, apartments and coffee shops all within walking distance of the campus.

If you are planning to visit the campus for a personal tour, Preview Day, Tiger RoundUp, Homecoming, or coming into town to watch one of the great Tigers athletic teams compete, there are several nice hotels, restaurants, and retailers ready to accommodate your needs.

The following are some community links to help you discover more about the beautiful and inviting home of Campbellsville University.
