Where we are
Our flagship campus stands atop a hill overlooking the forested hills of Lawrence, a city of 100,000 and a historic hub of culture and progressive change. There’s no other place — in Kansas or elsewhere — quite like our original hometown.
KU’s reach stretches across Kansas. We’ve grown from a single campus in Lawrence to five, including the Edwards Campus in Overland Park and medical branches in Kansas City, Wichita, and Salina. Together, we’re changing the world for the better.
