The Chance to Shape Your Life

College is a time to find out who you are, what you believe, and where you belong. The Judson community is a place where you can feel at home in a community that follows Christian values. You can plug in and be fully engaged—all while having the best time of your life.

Campus life at Judson University

Find Your Place at Judson

Living, playing and learning together is the core of the Judson experience. In our Christ-centered campus environment, we live as a true community.

Get Involved

Dozens of clubs and organizations. Theater productions and music performances. Film screenings, exhibits, intramural sports—there are endless opportunities to try something new or make new friends.

We Support Your Success

We want to help you shape the world. Our faculty and staff will be devoted to helping you succeed in the classroom and in life. As a student at Judson, you will have access to tutoring, mental health resources, counseling and our on-campus nurse.

Join Our Team


The Judson Eagles are known as champions on and off the field. Our 22 varsity athletic teams compete in the NAIA, and our entire campus cheers them on.

City Life

Elgin is a beautiful and safe northwest suburb of Chicago. With plenty of dining, shopping and activities nearby, you are also a short drive from Chicago’s famous ballparks and street food (plus endless internship options). Here, you get the best of both worlds!

Congratulations to Madison from Elkhart, Ind., who won our gift basket of Judson goodies @lifest in Wisconsin last week! Everyone who played the scholarship game won great scholarships and were entered into a drawing for our special JUbasket. We're looking forward to playing the scholarship game @Lifest in Nashville! We hope everyone who won a scholarship will visit campus soon!

Thank you, Lord, for our @Judsoneagles scholar athletes. While they work to achieve their dreams in sport and competition, we are honored to help them develop a passion for learning, discover their faith and friend communities, and prepare them for meaningful careers.

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
