With a rich heritage as West Virginia’s oldest institution of higher education, West Liberty University was established in 1837. Our beautiful campus is situated on a picturesque hilltop, just an hour from Pittsburgh and two hours from Columbus, making it easily accessible from two major airports. We pride ourselves on a safe campus and friendly student experience that compliment our quality education at an affordable price.
WLU features a main campus and a nearby satellite campus, located at the Highlands Shopping, Dining and Entertainment Complex. Both locations are minutes from the Pennsylvania and Ohio borders, near the city of Wheeling, in West Virginia’s Northern Panhandle.
Our College of Arts and Communication, College of Education, College of Liberal Arts, College of Sciences, Gary E. West College of Business and School of Professional Studies offer personalized education delivered by a team of highly qualified faculty that provide a supportive student experience in the classroom and online.
