Main Campus in Phoenix

GCU’s main campus is rapidly expanding in the heart of West Phoenix. With new apartments, classrooms and intramural fields being added in 2016, GCU’s goal is to provide the best campus experience for students of all majors and programs. The Office of Student Affairs provides traditional students with support through offices like Career Services, Residence Life and Student Engagement.

Under the warm Phoenix sun, there are a variety of events and facilities available to meet students’ needs. Fitness centers, swimming pools, clubs, intramural sports and popular restaurants are accessible for students to enjoy in their free time. Outside of GCU’s main campus, students are close to Downtown Phoenix, Talking Stick Resort Arena, the Phoenix Zoo and so much more!


GCU’s Tempe extension offers master’s degrees through the College of Education for teachers looking to advance their teaching and leadership skills. Evening cohorts are available to meet the needs of a teacher’s busy schedule. The cohorts allow students to take one class at a time, for one night a week. Students at GCU’s Tempe extension enjoy the benefit of receiving the same curriculum, individualized attention and support from faculty members as students on the main campus.


At GCU’s Scottsdale HonorHealth extension, students can earn a BSN, MSN or master’s in education. This extension is a prime location for students earning a BSN or MSN, as it is steps away from HonorHealth Scottsdale Shea Medical Center. During students’ leisure time, they may take advantage of several attractions Scottsdale has to offer.


GCU’s Tucson extension offers bachelor’s degrees and master’s degrees from the College of Nursing and Health Care Professions and master’s degrees from the College of Education. Students at the Tucson extension receive the same quality education, have access to all of GCU’s student resources and take one class at a time to meet their scheduling needs. Tucson faculty members provide support and guidance for students during their journey to earning an advanced degree.
