About Washburn University

Washburn University is a public institution with more than 6,900 students and 1,000 faculty and staff involved in more than 200 academic programs. Our programs lead to certification, associate, bachelor, master's, doctor of nursing practice and juris doctor degrees.

All of our programs are offered through the College of Arts and Sciences and the schools of Applied Studies, Business, Law  and Nursing on a 160-acre residential campus in the heart of Topeka, Kan.

The broadly-based liberal arts and professional programs are enriched by a long-standing interactive relationship between the campus and Kansas’s capital city community.

Campus information

In addition to a wide range of academic options, students can participate in more than 100 on-campus clubs and organizations – from The Bod Squad, which supports Washburn’s NCAA Division II athletic programs, to student government and beyond. Students, faculty and staff also can enjoy numerous volunteer, cultural and recreational opportunities throughout campus and the Topeka community.

Topeka, our capital city, is home to more than 127,000 people and a great variety of things to do. Shopping, dining, the arts, historical museums, the public library and state resources like the Kansas Center for the Book make our city vibrant.

And we’re not the only ones who think so. Topeka was named in 2010 by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine one of the 10 Best Cities for the Next Decade.

Washburn University contributes immensely to the richness of life here. Many campus events, from concerts to lectures are free and open to the public. Others, such as plays and the Ichabod athletic contests draw great crowds for just the price of a ticket.

And because more than 6,900 students attend the university and more than 1,200 individuals work on campus, Washburn also contributes to the strong local economy.


Our core purpose in Residential Living is to support the University community by providing a comfortable, secure, and diverse living and learning environment for students, that encourages community relations and personal and academic development. You will have close access to all your classrooms, athletic events and the activities put on across campus. Living in the halls you will meet new friends and become connected to this wonderful community. We urge you to take full advantage of our many excellent services.
