Muskingum University’s proud heritage began in 1837, when Ohio was an infant state and covered wagons were bringing adventurous settlers westward over the newly completed National Road through New Concord. The University’s Native American name, sometimes mispronounced and often misspelled, is a source of pride and an enduring link to the history of frontier America “beyond the Alleghenies.”


At Muskingum University, we educate the whole person for the whole world.

Our singular focus is preparing you for success – through an engaging, experiential education like no other.


The Office of Academic Affairs supports teaching, learning and both faculty and student/faculty research at Muskingum University. It does so through active collaboration, and through the coordination of the work of the faculty and the academic support staff who serve our caring academic community.

Career Services concentrates on the process each student will need to navigate through in order to prepare for a career or graduate school. Through programs and services, we are dedicated to helping each student build an individual portfolio that best presents him or her to prospective employers and graduate schools.

Housing services

Muskingum is a residential university which requires all undergraduate students to live on campus and maintain a university meal plan for a minimum of 6 semesters (beginning with the class that entered the Fall of 2013).  Students who are 25 years of age or older at the time residency begins are not required to live in campus housing.  Students 25 years of age or older must request permission to live in campus housing from the Vice President of Student Affairs or his/her designee.

The Library’s holdings include 209,000 books and more, 310 journal subscriptions, and 14 daily/weekly newspaper subscriptions. In addition, the Library provides access to: 46 million books, millions of electronic articles, 12,000 electronic journals, 140 databases, 25,000 e-books; thousands of images, videos and sounds, 12,000 theses and dissertations from Ohio students and more.
