A Beautiful Setting to Get a Great Education

Welcome to Salisbury University!

Salisbury University was founded in 1925 and is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The University is home to over 200 international students from more than 60 countries and is part of the world renowned University System of Maryland. SU welcomes students from around the world to bring their energy, talents and cultures to share with the Salisbury community!

SU is very welcoming to international students!

"They really make you feel at home. They even create special events for you."

Location. Location. Location.

From shopping to restaurants all around campus, there’s never been a better time to visit SU and make it your home sweet home!

SU is located on the Eastern Shore, halfway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Chesapeake Bay.  With only 30 miles (50 Km) from Assateague Island and the iconic beaches of Ocean City, and only a short drive from major cities like Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York, the Eastern Shore is yours to explore!

SU’s close proximity to major cities makes it possible for our international students to do internships and gain valuable work experience.  With so many opportunities – including internships at multinational organizations, and regional health and education systems – you are “job ready” when you graduate.
