Northern Kentucky University is easy to find - our name says it all.
We're a growing campus nestled in the hills of a safe and quiet suburb in Northern Kentucky with all the attributes of a larger college town. Grocery stores, restaurants, banks and post offices are conveniently within walking distance for students, and hospitals with urgent care facilities and emergency services are nearby.
The campus is accessible from four major highways and just 20 minutes away from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. We're located seven miles south of downtown Cincinnati and less than two hours away from Lexington and Louisville.
There's always plenty of activity going on around campus - whether it's students playing Frisbee on the grass or having lunch in the outdoor amphitheatre. It's an environment where students are encouraged to express themselves, holding demonstrations or decorating community benches with fraternity colors and insignias. The entire campus is wireless, too, so students have the option of writing (or avoiding writing) papers in a campus coffee shop or outside by the lake.
Just a short drive away, you can find the bright lights of Cincinnati, which offers everything from high culture to a variety of bars and nightclubs. At Newport on the Levee, 10 minutes from campus, you can take in a movie, buy a new outfit, try five different kinds of ethnic cuisine, play some skeeball and round out the evening with a nightcap, all under one roof. In other parts of the county and across the river, you'll find state parks, lakes, bike trails, amusement parks and theatres.
We're named after our region for a reason - Northern Kentucky is a great place to live, work and play. We can't wait for you to come see for yourself.
