About Maryville University: Maryville University is a selective, comprehensive and nationally ranked private institution with nearly 6,000 students.

Consistently ranked as a top private school by Forbes and Kiplinger’s, Maryville has been named the No. 1 Overperforming University in the nation by U.S. News & World Report for the past two years. Maryville’s athletics teams compete in 18 men’s and women’s sports at the Division II level in the Great Lakes Valley Conference. Founded in 1872, the University is ideally situated on 130 picturesque acres in West St. Louis County.


At Maryville, academic excellence is our highest priority. We pride ourselves on our challenging programs and the caliber of our student body. Maryville offers 50 undergraduate, ten masters’ and four doctoral degree programs. With individualized advising and career exploration, our Academic Success and Advising centers afford students every opportunity to excel.


We believe that inviting and comfortable living space is important to academic success. In the past 10 years, we have built five new student apartment complexes with commons that collectively house 600 students. Our three air-conditioned, coeducational residence halls offer additional living quarters for students desiring to stay on campus.

Be Inspired

Maryville is tucked away in the heart of the suburbs on a 130-acre campus where natural beauty abounds. It’s difficult not to be inspired by the rolling hills, wooded areas, creeks, two lakes and miles of walking trails.

Get Involved

There are plenty of opportunities to stay busy outside the classroom. Both residential and commuter students are active in student government, intramural sports and over 80 campus clubs and organizations.


When it comes time for our students to seek real-life career experiences, opportunities are close by. The adjacent Maryville Corporate Centre and St. Luke’s Medical Center provide convenient access to internships.
