What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
It is the in-between of a large university and a small university. The professors are amazing. The campus is basically Kansas City.
Julie from O Fallon, MO
The diversity of University of Missouri-Kansas City is to die for! You make friends with new people almost everyday. There's a fair share of every ethnicity on this campus
UMKC student
UMKC is in the heart of the city, so there's lots to do nearby. There are tons of on-campus resources available. Campus itself has a great atmosphere, although a little quiet on weekends.
Nat
The program that I'm involved in (Conservatory) is fantastic. The faculty is clearly invested in our success. Overall, Greek life and Campus organized social events are few and far between.
Kathryn from Lees Summit, MO
I absolutely love the campus and the professors. The class sizes are nice for both lectures and discussion sessions. It is big without making you feel like you aren't important.
