University of Jamestown

Grow as a person. Grow as a professional.

Then go change the world.

There is a difference here.

It starts with our approach to education. We believe that our purpose as a University is to help our students grow, within the four walls of a classroom and beyond. All so they can develop into a well-rounded professional and person.

A big part of learning is living.

Yes, your GPA matters. But a great GPA, backed by a vibrant campus life – that means making friends who become family and sharing experiences that become lifelong memories – is what makes your time at UJ extraordinary.
