Experience a private liberal arts education at a state university price! The University of Montevallo is one of 29 public liberal arts colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada, and 13 of us are members of NSE.
Enjoy small class sizes on a campus that looks like a movie set–think green quads, old trees with students in hammocks, and brick sidewalks and streets. Inside our historic buildings you will find highly qualified faculty teaching our classes–not graduate students. A student-to-faculty ratio of 16:1 allows for lots of access to faculty inside and outside of class.
Check out our majors, our gorgeous campus, our unique campus traditions, our Southern food and mild winters, and our great white sand beaches and forest-covered mountains. Come to Alabama, y’all!
Campus Location - The University of Montevallo is located in the city of Montevallo, Alabama (pop. 6,575) and is the geographical center of the state. It is 35 miles south of Birmingham. Birmingham has recently been called "the next Music City" and has many award-winning restaurants. Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains yet within a four hour drive to the famous white sand beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, you will find almost any outdoor activity–unless it involves snow or ice! Northern Alabama is home to NASA facilities including Space Camp, Lookout Mountain in the northeast corner of the state, and the magic of the music created in Muscle Shoals. Lynyrd Skynyrd sings about Muscle Shoals in the song “Sweet Home Alabama”. Alabama is home to many iconic Civil Rights locations and museums. Alabama also has a rich literary heritage. Harper Lee and Truman Capote were both born in Monroeville. Alabama is also birthplace of the fictional Forrest Gump and the very real Helen Keller.
Helpful Information - The City of Montevallo is a pedestrian- and bicyclist-friendly community that offers many local amenities even to students who live on campus. The bike share initiative ValloCycle allows bicycles to be checked out at various check out stations for use for a small fee. Additionally, Montevallo has a thriving artist community that is showcased in such local events as the Montevallo Artwalk, which is staged several times a year, and the annual Montevallo Art Show that is held in April.
