Accent on the individual
At Ashland University, we believe in an individualized educational experience. We’ll listen and work with you to help put you on the best path to reach your goals and figure out what you want to do in life.
Our personalized approach includes small class sizes, one-on-one assistance, and staff who are ready to support you in the ways you need it most. AU is a liberal arts college—that means you’ll get your degree while learning skills like critical thinking, communication, and creative problem-solving. We’re proud to say that we teach students how to think, not what to think.
Located in Ashland, Ohio, our midsized private institution sits conveniently between Cleveland and Columbus. Ashland has 18 local parks, a skydiving park, and an escape room, while our budding downtown is filled with local eats, treats, and boutiques.

Students also have opportunities in study abroad, our honors program, and our top-rated Ashbrook Center. Exciting academic experiences along with 130 clubs and campus organizations make Ashland University the perfect place for any student looking to make an impact in the world and find where they belong.
