From the moment you arrive on this gorgeous hilly campus, you'll be welcomed by buildings of an attractive modern architecture and a park-like atmosphere. Although located minutes from downtown Kansas City, the campus itself will make you feel as though you're in the country (except for the occasional peek of a skyscraper on the horizon). Offering a full range of programs for undergraduates through professional students, the campus is an inviting prospect for any college student. As you drive around the campus, be wary of the fact that many streets are one way but other than that you should have no problems exploring the campus. Parking is plentiful and free and you'll likely find that getting around is very simple and straight forward. If looking for a school to attend or a campus that can provide a strong library and event schedule, UMKC may be a perfect fit. And don't forget the campus mascot the Kangaroo!
