Bellarmine University is an independent liberal arts institution.

Bellarmine University is a vibrant community of educational excellence and ethical awareness that consistently ranks among the nation's best colleges and universities. Our students pursue an education based in the liberal arts – and in the distinguished, inclusive Catholic tradition of educational excellence, the oldest and most rewarding in the western world. It is a lifelong education, worthy of the university's namesake, Saint Robert Bellarmine, and of his invitation to each of us to learn and live in veritatis amore – in the love of all that is beautiful, true and good in life.

On the edge of downtown Louisville Bellarmine is set on three beautiful hills in the artful and eclectic Highlands neighborhood. We are within walking distance of the Bardstown Road corridor, where coffee houses, restaurants, and one-of-a-kind shops add to the overall Bellarmine experience. Downtown Louisville is just minutes away and offers world-class theatre, arts, sports, museums and gorgeous riverfront parks. Louisville is situated on the mile-wide Ohio River, at the gateway to the South and the crossroads of the Midwest. Two hundred million people – two-thirds of the nation's population – live within a 500-mile radius of the city.

Our lush, 175-acre campus comprises more than 50 buildings, including the beautiful Siena residential complex, the W.L. Lyons Brown Library, the Norton Health Science Center and Our Lady of the Woods Chapel. Centro, one of the most significant construction projects in Bellarmine’s history, is a three-story structure connected by a glass atrium to one of Bellarmine’s foundational buildings and is home to the Admissions Welcome Center, the Career Development Center and state-of-the-art classrooms, as well as spaces for students to study and relax. Our recreational facilities include indoor and outdoor tennis courts; a fitness center; and athletic fields including the Owsley B. Frazier Stadium, home to lacrosse, soccer, field hockey, and track and field. Our campus on three hills and our award-winning architecture evoke the beautiful Italian hill towns of Tuscany, birthplace of our patron, Roberto Bellarmino.
