Campus Location - The University of Montevallo is located in the city of Montevallo, Alabama (pop. 6,575) and is the geographical center of the state. It is 35 miles south of Birmingham. Birmingham has recently been called "the next Music City" and has many award-winning restaurants. Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains yet within a four hour drive to the famous white sand beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, you will find almost any outdoor activity–unless it involves snow or ice! Northern Alabama is home to NASA facilities including Space Camp, Lookout Mountain in the northeast corner of the state, and the magic of the music created in Muscle Shoals. Lynyrd Skynyrd sings about Muscle Shoals in the song “Sweet Home Alabama”. Alabama is home to many iconic Civil Rights locations and museums. Alabama also has a rich literary heritage. Harper Lee and Truman Capote were both born in Monroeville. Alabama is also birthplace of the fictional Forrest Gump and the very real Helen Keller.
Helpful Information - The City of Montevallo is a pedestrian- and bicyclist-friendly community that offers many local amenities even to students who live on campus.
