Our Campus


The campus of Cincinnati Christian University is an oasis in the middle of a big city. First-time visitors are often surprised to discover all that exists on our small campus hill. Even though there are unlimited amenities within minutes of CCU, our campus is designed to make students feel at home.

There are two dining options available on campus, offering students flexibility in their choices and eating schedules. The Student Union is our main Dining Hall. Located in Presidents Hall, it is open at specific times throughout the day and offers a wide variety of hot meals, grill options and a large salad bar. In the lower level of the Worship and Ministry building, our Hill Top Coffee Shop serves soups and sandwiches throughout the day as well as snacks and a wide variety of coffees and teas.

There is always something happening around campus to keep students engaged. Whether it’s attending an athletic event, playing instruments, participating in a student organization, or just hanging out with friends, our students have no problems finding things to keep them occupied. Our Student Center, located in the Worship and Ministry Building, is a constant hub of activity that features the Hill Top Coffee Shop, pool tables, a TV lounge, ping-pong and private group study rooms.

When it is time for homework or to study for an exam, our students have the resources they need. The George Mark Elliott Library provides the CCU community with resources and services to get the information they need. The library has a collection of over 150,000 books (both print and electronic), microforms, and audio-visual media with access to thousands of more resources through our databases and affiliations. Additionally, there are wireless internet hotspots throughout campus so students can study virtually anywhere on our hill.

CCU’s urban location means that we have a higher commuter-rate than many Christian colleges; students that reside within the I-275 loop are permitted to live at home. All other students are required to live on campus. There are two dormitories at CCU where students reside. Each dorm has a resident director, who lives in the building and is responsible for all aspects of dorm life. Additionally, each floor has a Resident Assistance, a student who counsels, guides, and assists residents with any issues.
