Student Life

Campus life

Our main campus is located at Mile 62.5 on the George Price Highway in Central Farm, located within the beautiful Cayo District. We are surrounded by a diverse ecosystem of flora and fauna, providing a perfect place to learn and grow among our dynamic mix of global students and faculty. We are in the process of designing our new “university city,”, complete with lecture halls and laboratories, an organic university farm for teaching purposes, student and faculty residences, a campus store, a restaurant, and recreational facilities. Our new campus will be located about a mile away.

Sports facilities

The Department of Athletics in conjunction with the Office of Student Affairs organizes sporting activities allowing students to participate in intramural and/or varsity sports. Participation in sports promotes healthy living within the Galen community. Sports activities foster an environment in which our athletes are encouraged to demonstrate sportsmanship and fair play while promoting a strong sense of the Galen Eagles spirit.

As a member of the Association of Tertiary Level Institutions in Belize (ATLIB) Sports, the University’s Department of Athletics coordinates sporting teams to compete in the various disciplines under the Association’s charter including:

  • Basketball
  • Football
  • Volleyball
  • Softball

Student clubs

The Student Government Association serves as the voice of Galen students. We advocate for students regarding any issues that needs to be presented to the university. Not only internally, but the SGA also represents Galen University outside of campus with any issues that may impact the university and its students. The SGA also works diligently to create a welcoming and engaging campus community by planning events for all Galen students to attend.
