We’re committed to safety for our students. Our police department is on call 24 hours a day, and the LiveSafe mobile app and Eagle Alerts provide safety and weather updates.


We’re located in Morehead, Kentucky—a city big on small-town charm. It’s a place that thrives on the bond between college and community, where you’ll quickly find familiar, friendly faces.

You’ll discover student-oriented stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and other local businesses within walking distance of campus. Public transit offers easy access to shopping centers and major chain restaurants.
