Charleston, WV

We call ourselves “Charleston’s University” because we are truly a part of our community.

There's just something special about this place.

Charleston is the cultural, recreational, and business capital of West Virginia. We take full advantage of our main campus being located in the capital city – offering our students access to world-class recreational opportunities, as well as a growing number of entertainment and sporting events.

Charleston's University Initiative

We call ourselves “Charleston’s University” because we are truly a part of our community – and the community is part of university life as well. Through strategic partnerships with organizations from around our city, our students have access to all that Charleston has to offer – including unique opportunities for internships and employment.
