Midway University is a private, co-educational institution located in the greater Lexington, Kentucky area. Founded in 1847, Midway University's student body consists of nearly 700 traditional undergraduate students attending classes on its residential campus in Midway, Kentucky. Total enrollment (including traditional and online undergraduate, graduate, and dual credit students) is more than 1,800 students from across Kentucky, the United States, and several foreign countries.

Undergraduate students can select from 20+ career-focused majors within the University's schools — the School of Arts & Sciences, the School of Business, Equine and Sport Studies, and the School of Health Sciences. The University has 27 athletic teams, including two equestrian teams. Academic and athletic scholarships are available. Graduate programs are offered in the areas of business (MBA), education (MED) and nursing (MSN).

Located on a 200-acre working horse farm and in a bucolic rural location, the campus is both beautiful and safe. The charming town of Midway includes fine dining, boutiques, antique stores and art galleries, and a train that runs through town (and campus) daily. The larger urban areas of Lexington, Louisville and Cincinnati, Ohio are within easy driving distance and offer opportunities for internships and jobs.

For students looking for a unique, private education, Midway University has a long history of providing support to its students - and always making college affordable. In fact, Midway University is the "Most Affordable Private University in Central Kentucky."
