Founded in 1850, Urbana University is an independent university that offers a liberal arts education in a small college environment that emphasizes student learning through individual attention, excellence in instruction, career-oriented programs, and critical thinking. Nestled in Urbana, Ohio, on a growing campus, it is small enough to foster close connections between faculty and students, and large enough to provide cutting-edge programs.
It seeks to broaden students’ perspectives toward their careers and provide an intellectual foundation for lifelong learning. Urbana University offers bachelors and masters degrees as well as associate and certificate programs.
Urbana University students are a diverse mix of men and women from Ohio, 18 other states, and 8 foreign countries. It was the second institution of higher education in Ohio to admit women, and the first in the state to offer a nontraditional degree completion program.
Urbana University is committed to incorporating the tenets of sustainability in all that it does, including its infrastructure and grounds management, academic programming, and adult and continuing education. In keeping with that commitment, Urbana University partnered with an Ohio company to install a solar array on campus and was designated a Tree Campus this past spring.
Its vibrant 128-acre campus in west central Ohio is a blend of modern and traditional architecture. Composed of 16 buildings and 5 residence halls, the campus is conveniently located less than an hour’s drive from Columbus and Dayton.
