Welcome to Campbellsville University!  We are delighted that you have decided to drop by, virtually, and learn more about us. You are about to learn that Campbellsville University is a place where you can develop your talents in preparation for a bright future.  Your first step is to get to know us, so we invite you to jump in and discover the CU difference.

The students and faculty of CU are world-changers who invite you to find your calling and join the effort.  So, spend some time exploring CU’s vast opportunities and innovative approaches to Christian higher education.

As you browse the CU website, you will find that Campbellsville University’s main residential campus caters to nearly 2,000 graduate and undergraduate students, while enrollment across the CU system is more than 10,000.  We have eight locations in Kentucky, two centers in California, and an emerging location in Canada.  We offer instruction and study abroad opportunities across the continents, and we invite you to come with us and see the world.

A hometown university with a cosmopolitan demographic, CU has the largest international population (5,900+) of private universities in Kentucky.  We boast 1,000+ student-athletes on 42 teams in 19 different sports.  Our teams regularly compete in regional, conference, and national championships because we know that “it’s more than a game.”

Campbellsville University continues to grow.  New facilities recently completed or underway include: a brilliant welcome center, a student wellness center, expanded athletics facilities, a new main campus stadium for football and soccer, a mass communication center (journalism, broadcasting, and film), and a chiropractic program center.  And, there are more on the way.

At Campbellsville University, we are committed to our mission of providing a quality education with academically rigorous programs designed to develop well-rounded and well-prepared servant leaders.
