About the University of Louisville

The University of Louisville (UofL) is a nationally recognized research university located in Kentucky's largest metropolitan area.

The university has three campuses:

  2. The Health Sciences Center is situated in downtown Louisville's medical complex and houses the university's health related programs.
  3. The Shelby Campus is a 230 acre plot of land located in eastern Louisville. This campus houses business, offices and technology endeavors.
