CityU was founded as City College in 1973. We changed our name in 1982 to better reflect our growth and expanded academic offerings. From the beginning, CityU has been about giving real people the real tools they need to succeed in the real world. Practical education from experienced professionals - people who know what it takes.

More than 35 years later, CityU is one of the Northwest's largest private nonprofit universities, with 45,000 graduates and counting. Some students take the traditional go-to-college-get-a-degree-and-a-job route. Some don't. Continuing education means different things to different people, and we're open to your point of view.
