Life as a college student in Flagstaff, Arizona


Come for the climate, stay for the community

Students laugh at a restaurant in downtown Flagstaff.

Flagstaff—the home of Northern Arizona University’s main campus—is a welcoming place, full of superlatives. It offers the tallest mountain in the state…and the cleanest air and darkest skies you’ll find anywhere.

“I’m not used to people being so friendly in India. At least from where I come from in Mumbai, it’s a city, and it’s a fast city. People don’t have time for you. But when I came to Flagstaff, I was like, wow, people randomly smile at you. People are so friendly. They care about you. Now, I cherish that.”
– Glen D'Silva, pursuing a doctorate in Mechanical Engineering, Flagstaff Campus

Live on campus and be at the center of the action


“I arrived in Flagstaff undecided and uncertain about my future. I was quickly captivated by the Psychological Sciences program. Supportive faculty led me to an active role in undergraduate research. That exposure helped me commit to a desire for higher learning. My tenure at NAU allowed me to embrace my distinctive background as a first-generation student and trailblaze my career aspirations.”
– José Olais, BS Psychological Sciences, ’19, Flagstaff Campus

“As an event programmer, I’ve been the planning force behind some of our biggest concerts, important speakers, and fun events for students. Here, I’ve had to push myself by learning to make hard decisions, direct a group of people, and think creatively. I feel like I’ve accomplished exactly what I wanted to do—create memorable experiences for others. Along the way, I also reshaped myself into a more confident person.”
– Emma Gray, BS Hotel and Restaurant Management with an undergraduate certificate in Hospitality Event Management and a minor in Business, '19, Flagstaff Campus
