A great university in a great community!

The University's main campus is located in Lawrence, Kansas, one of the greatest college towns in America. Located atop the beautiful Mount Oread, KU is committed to high standards of learning - both in and out of the classroom. KU has many undergraduate research opportunities, 12 libraries, and several museums. The university assists students in achieving both academic and personal success by providing professional advisors, health care, financial aid, and on-campus housing that ranges from large residence halls to small scholarship halls and apartments. The University and Lawrence have a great social scene with many entertainment venues providing films, speakers, and concerts. Over 500 student organizations provide countless opportunities to learn, make new friends, and volunteer in the community. Many recreational activities are available with a first-class fitness center, outdoor playing fields, swimming pool, intramurals and sports clubs, and Clinton Reservoir, located just west of town. The nationally competitive Jayhawks, men's and women's sports teams, are thrilling to watch and the "Rock Chalk Jayhawk" chant is recognized around the world.
