Life at NAU

Beautiful NAU Campus and the San Francisco Peaks

The world looks different from here

Located at the base of the scenic San Francisco Peaks, the university's Flagstaff campus features a landscape and climate that is unlike anything else in Arizona. The area’s four seasons attract year-round outdoor enthusiasts for mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking, running, camping, snowboarding and high-altitude athletic training.

With its roots in a city founded on the power of community, NAU is characterized by its independent yet collaborative spirit. You’ll find meaningful ways to connect with others, as in one of dozens of residence hall-based learning communities where you can live and study alongside others who share your interests or major.

When you’re taking a study break, take your adventures outside to explore the region’s picturesque setting that breaks the Arizona stereotype and contributes to its reputation as one of the nation’s best college towns.

Points of Pride

  • More than 20,000 students are enrolled on NAU’s Flagstaff campus.
  • An 18:1 student-to-faculty ratio means you’ll have more interaction with your professors.
