Frequently Asked Questions - About Samford

Samford's campus consists of Georgian-Colonial style buildings and approximately 300 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. The campus is located in the picturesque mountainous area of Shades Valley, less than six miles from downtown Birmingham, the state's largest city and industrial and cultural center.

Only undergraduate students live on-campus. However, since the campus is situated in Homewood, a thriving suburb of Birmingham near I-65, U.S. 280 and other major roads, a large number of apartments are easily accessible within 5 miles of the campus.
