With easy access to Columbus, Cincinnati, and Dayton, Cedarville University is located on a beautiful 400-acre campus situated at the north edge of Cedarville, Ohio. Cedarville’s small-town setting with its historic architecture, local coffee roaster and restaurants, and peaceful natural atmosphere make it a great place to live during your four years of college. And, because of Cedarville’s proximity to three major metropolitan areas, you’ll find plenty to do within driving distance of campus.


Within a mile of the University is the Little Miami Bike Trail, which is part of an extensive system of paved bike trails in the region. Cedarville’s surrounding countryside extends west toward John Bryan State Park and has been recognized as one of the most scenic in the Midwest. The Indian Mound Reserve is just minutes from campus and includes hiking trails, historical sites, and stunning waterfalls.

Cedarville is located on the crossroads of 72 and 42, near Springfield and Dayton
