With more than 50 Georgian-Colonial buildings set on a manicured 247-acre campus, Samford University is an idyllic place to be your college home.

Here, a dedicated faculty and energetic students join to create a community of learning and faith like no other. The beauty of Samford’s campus is virtually matchless, but it pales in comparison to the quality of our people.
