Our beautiful campus is located in the city of Morehead, a place big on small town charm that has shopping, coffee shops and local restaurants, as well as other local businesses, within walking distance. Take a short drive away from campus and you’ll find various shopping centers, large grocery stores and popular chain restaurants – in other words, pretty much everything you need.


​Feel like getting outside? You definitely should at MSU. We are located in the Appalachian foothills in the heart of the Daniel Boone National Forest. One of the most stunning sights on our campus is picturesque Eagle Lake, located on a hill above campus. In addition, Cave Run Lake is just a short drive away, so there are plenty of opportunities to walk, hike, bike and make the most of your scenic surroundings. Plus, Outdoor Adventures, located in the Recreation & Wellness Center, allows you to sign up for outdoor trips, take workshops on various survival skills, rent camping and hiking equipment, or kayaks and paddle boards for Eagle Lake.
