Grand Canyon University

Welcome to Grand Canyon University (GCU), Arizona's premier private Christian university. For more than 65 years, our Phoenix campus has been the gateway to success for countless scholars and industry leaders. Our commitment to our Christian worldview is carried out in a loving way that provides greater unity across the university, and our foundational documents help articulate those beliefs and who we are as a community. With acres of scenic grounds and outstanding facilities, we invite the next generation of students and working professionals to enjoy the complete university experience.

University Growth

GCU is growing rapidly with plans for continued expansion. Since 2009, we have invested millions into the university to improve the quality of academic offerings and student experiences. This infrastructure includes new classrooms, laboratories, libraries, student support centers, residence halls and recreational facilities. In fall 2016, we welcomed a record number of students to our Phoenix campus and we plan to expand our student population and campus facilities going forward.

Our university also continues to accommodate our growing online and evening student communities. We have tens of thousands of online students attending class from across the globe. In turn, we are constantly refining our digital platforms to deliver GCU's outstanding campus experience to virtual settings. We are also building additional campus locations to help full-time and evening students attend class closer to home.

"New" is infused throughout GCU's growing campus. In fall 2016, we finished construction on a 173,447-square-feet, state-of-the-art engineering building, designed to accommodate our growing number of students studying in STEM majors. We also opened three new on-campus apartment buildings for upperclassmen. As part of our initiative to add 10 new sports facilities to campus in the next two years, we unveiled the brand new, 6,000-seat GCU Stadium in fall 2016, home to our NCAA Division I soccer teams. In 2017, we also proudly unveiled the Jerry Colangelo Museum, honoring the accomplishments of sports icon Jerry Colangelo with photos and mementos.

GCU has also expanded outside of campus to include new properties. The GCU Hotel is located close to campus and offers affordable room rates and renovated accommodations - the perfect place for families to stay when visiting their student. Canyon 49 Grill, located in the hotel, offers the perfect local hangout, with delicious food, family-friendly atmosphere and plenty of Lope spirit and hospitality. Explore the GCU Hotel by visiting; click on Dining to browse Canyon 49 Grill's menus. The Grand Canyon Beverage Company, also located in the hotel and on campus, offers gourmet beverages, including coffee, tea and specialty drinks. Find out more by visiting


The Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and its predecessor have accredited GCU continually since 1968. In 2017, GCU's accreditation was reaffirmed by the Higher Learning Commission after a comprehensive review of the institution's academic offerings, governance and administration, mission, finances and resources.
