  • At Capital University, you’ll learn more about American culture than you ever thought you would – both inside and outside the classroom. Life on our campus is anything but ordinary as we are truly in a “best of both worlds” location. Minutes from the city benefits of Columbus, Ohio, yet far enough removed for the safety of a traditional college town. Our suburb of Bexley is great for college students of all types – those that love movies, food, shopping, running, walking and more. 

    Capital’s residential campus is the perfect place to spend your college years. You may be far from home but you are gaining a second home at Capital. And a second family – your Capital Family. The attentive staff of our International Education Office and our caring faculty and friendly students are always looking out for you and making sure your time on campus is rewarding. We even have an International Student Association and nearly 100 other student organizations where you can become a leader amongst your peers. In short, Capital is what college should be and Columbus is one of the best places you can live in the United States. There is a world of possibility awaiting you on (and off!) campus.
