Visit Jacksonville University

Visit our Phin Family!

Nestled under sprawling oaks on the St. John’s River in northeast coastal Florida, Jacksonville University is only miles from the beaches and Jacksonville’s city center.

Between the weekly art and music festivals, Fortune 500 businesses, seven professional sports teams, and premier hospitals, it’s easy to find your niche at our university and in our city. Come visit our riverfront campus for a tour or open house, and be sure to check out one of the many cultural events happening in Jacksonville while you’re here. Can’t make it to Jacksonville? Take a look at our virtual tour or join us at an event near you!
