We embrace our urban location. Kansas City is considered one of the top engineering and computing communities in the country, and we use that to our advantage. Area professionals give presentations on campus nearly every week and local firms employ students in part-time jobs and internships.
Kansas City offers a Midwestern feel with the action and entertainment of a major cultural hub. At UMKC, you’ll be within 5 miles of two world-class art museums and a nationally recognized opera, symphony and ballet. Between First Fridays, our plethora of annual outdoor festivals, and exciting shopping and restaurants located in the River Market, Westport, Plaza or any of our other unique neighborhoods, you’ll never run out of things to try!
We’re also home to the Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Chiefs, and Sporting KC – guaranteed to keep any sports addict busy year-round! And did we mention the BBQ? It’s a pretty big deal.
