Flagstaff Campus

Flagstaff Campus With Peaks

A place where you can belong

The Flagstaff campus is surrounded by towering ponderosa pines and is in the heart of a vibrant, welcoming mountain town. It’s simple to get around, on foot or on a bicycle—making it easy for lifestyle and academics to go hand-in-hand.

With plenty of individual attention from professors who encourage you to grow, courses that expand your horizons, nearly 300 student clubs and organizations to choose from, and myriad activities to explore off campus, it’s an easy place to make your home.

Four seasons means one beautiful campus

The Flagstaff campus is an Arizona rarity—we have four beautiful seasons with average summer highs from 70-80 degrees and snowy, but mild winters.
