About Northern Kentucky University
Northern Kentucky University is a growing metropolitan university of approximately 15,000 students served by more than 2,000 faculty and staff on a thriving suburban campus near Cincinnati. Located in the quiet suburb of Highland Heights, Kentucky, just seven miles southeast of Cincinnati, NKU has become a leader in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region by providing a private school education for a fraction of the cost. While we are one of the fastest growing universities in Kentucky, our professors still know our students’ names. In fall 2011, we celebrated the construction and opening of the $52.8 million and 110,000-square-foot Griffin Hall, home of NKU’s College of Informatics. In 2008, we opened our $37 million, 144,000-square-foot student union building, as well as the BB&T Arena, a $60 million, 9,400-seat arena for basketball games and other events.
The 2016-17 academic year marked the first season NKU was eligible for participation in NCAA Championships after reclassifying to Division I. The Norse qualified for the NCAA Women's Soccer Championship and NCAA Men's Basketball Championship in 2016-17.
