Nova Southeastern University, a private, not-for-profit institution, offers a
diverse array of innovative academic programs at the undergraduate, graduate,
and professional levels, complementing on-campus educational opportunities and
resources with accessible distance learning programs, and fostering intellectual
inquiry, leadership, and commitment to community through engagement of students
and faculty members in a dynamic, life-long learning environment.

A tour of the NSU campus is an architectural and intellectual feast, with
cutting-edge research and learning facilities at every turn. Encompassing 300
acres on the western edge of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, NSU is the modern-day
embodiment of Thomas Jefferson’s vision of a university as society’s
intellectual and cultural hub.
At the heart of it all is the Alvin Sherman Library, Research, and Information
Technology Center—situated between a sparkling lake and wide-open green spaces,
which serve as ideal backdrops for the numerous open-air festivals that take
place on campus throughout the year.
The library is flanked on one side by NSU’s innovative H. Wayne Huizenga School
of Business and Entrepreneurship and the Graduate School of Computer and
Information Sciences and on the other by the breathtaking new Don Taft
University Center, our state-of-the art, multipurpose sports and recreation
Just steps away, you’ll find the Shepard Broad Law Center and the Maltz
Building, housing NSU’s Center for Psychological Studies and the Graduate School
of Humanities and Social Sciences.
Across campus, you’ll discover NSU’s Health Professions Division, which is home
to the university’s colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, Dental Medicine,
Optometry, Pharmacy, Allied Heath and Nursing, and more as well as medical and
dental clinics that serve the neighboring community
NSU is also home to University School, a pre-k through grade 12 college
preparatory school, and the Jim& Jan Moran Family Center Village, which houses
the Mailman Segal Institute for Early Childhood Studies.
But NSU isn’t all work and no play. In addition to an array of on-campus housing
options, you’ll find plenty of athletic fields for both intramural competition
and NSU’s own NCAA Division II Sharks teams.
NSU is also home to the Miami Dolphins, whose headquarters and training camp are
located right on campus. Just look for “The Bubble,” a two-acre, inflatable dome
housing one of the team’s three practice fields.
And while not located directly on campus, the campus tour wouldn’t be complete
without a mention of two other NSU showcases: The Oceanographic Center, which
sits on 10 acres of Atlantic oceanfront and serves as home to the acclaimed
National Coral Reef Institute and the Guy Harvey Research Institute; and the
Fischler School of Education and Human Services in North Miami Beach, which
continues to enjoy a national reputation for the quality of its education
As a leader in technology and innovation, NSU has been named one of America’s
Top 20 Cyber Universities by Forbes magazine. Wireless access and computer
microlabs throughout the campus make it possible to connect to the world from
virtually anywhere.
