Facilities Built With You In Mind
Located on the beautiful and historic Eastern Shore, Salisbury University’s 220 acres are a nationally recognized arboretum. The easily accessible campus includes nearly 100 buildings. The Shore’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified new construction project, recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council, was built at SU and 10 additional such buildings have followed in the last decade. SU also has some of the best athletics facilities in NCAA Division III. Beyond main campus, SU's Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art on Schumaker Pond houses one of the nation’s best collections of folk art (according to USA Today); the Nanticoke River Center in nearby Riverton serves students studying the environment; and the Plaza Gallery Building in downtown Salisbury, home to art, science and a future entrepreneurship center, is playing a visible role in the urban center’s renaissance. Since 2000, SU has seen some $350 million in new construction.
