Since 1888, the University of Charleston has grown and expanded to meet the educational needs of students from across the nation and around the world. The University of Charleston is an independent, co-educational residential university with two principal locations in West Virginia – the main campus in the state capital of Charleston and the second location in Beckley. The university also has a strong online presence.
UC was founded in 1888 as Barboursville Seminary. In 1901, the school was renamed Morris Harvey College and in 1947 moved to its present location. In 1978, Morris Harvey became the University of Charleston.
We are Charleston’s University not just because our riverfront location is directly across from the WV state capitol complex and the city of Charleston, but because UC students are welcomed as part of the community. Students can take advantage of all our location offers, including opportunities for internships and community service.
Our history is rich with interesting milestones (the campus buildings were literally ferried across the river to our current location in 1947, for example). Our mission is one of preparation for a lifetime of striving to do more and do better. And our leadership provides a strong vision for making UC the best it can be for its students, faculty and staff, and surrounding community.
