Our Location

Wichita State University is located in the heart of the midwest in the largest city in the state of Kansas. Our beautiful 330-acre campus is situated on the crest of a hill with a view of downtown Wichita, 5 miles to the southwest. We'd love to have you visit us! You can get driving directions to any point on campus using our Interactive Map.


See Our Progress

If you attended Wichita State in the 2000s, chances are you wouldn't recognize the campus today. Beginning in 2012, a new mission and vision led to rapid expansion, with dozens of new buildings and renovation projects, new housing and campus life initiatives, and public-private partnerships with a growing list of businesses to support our firm commitment to applied learning, innovation, creativity and research.

Best of all, we're just getting started.
