A Christian Campus for You
Who We Are
Liberty University is the largest private non-profit university in the nation, the largest university in Virginia, and the largest Christian university in the world.
Liberty University was founded in 1971 by Dr. Jerry Falwell, Sr., with a vision to train Champions for Christ. An accredited institution, Liberty now offers more than 300 programs of study. Liberty's more than 7,000-acre campus boasts millions of square feet of technologically advanced academic, residential and recreational space, the vast majority of which was constructed in the last 15 years.
One of the most important aspects of college-shopping is the comparison of tuition costs, room, and board. Liberty costs 51% less than the average private college* and almost all of our students are awarded scholarships.
Student life at Liberty is exciting, and offers a unique emphasis on spiritual life, while maintaining a balance between recreation and academics. Liberty has 20 NCAA Division I Teams, as well as club teams and intramural teams, offering many options for students to participate.
