Grand Canyon University in Arizona

Welcome to Grand Canyon University, Arizona's premier private Christian university. Our focus is on providing a quality, affordable education to traditional students and working adult learners. We have a rich history of excellence, with more than 60 years of providing high-quality Christian education.

Campus Growth

In fall 2014, GCU welcomed more than 10,600 students to campus-the most in our history. We plan to grow our campus to 25,000 within the next five years.

Since 2009, Grand Canyon University has invested $480 million into the university to improve the quality of academic offerings and student experience. This infrastructure includes new classrooms, laboratories, libraries, student support centers, residence halls and recreational facilities. In summer 2014, we proudly announced our new College of Science, Engineering and Technology, which will continue to grow over the next several years as we add academic programs in the next-generation areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
