To say that Montevallo is unique would be an understatement. As a member of the prestigious Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges and as one of only 26 public liberal arts universities in the United States, Montevallo has emerged as a national leader in liberal arts education and has been recognized in numerous editions of U.S. News and World Report's Best Colleges as the highest ranked Tier One, public master's level university in Alabama.
The college of choice for many of the brightest young minds in the Southeast, Montevallo is home to approximately 3,000 students and its 160-acre central campus is noted for its unparalleled beauty. Montevallo's white columned brick buildings, famous red brick streets, verdant lawns, colorful flowerbeds, and stately trees surround students with academic tradition. The core of the campus, designed by the world-renowned Olmsted Brothers, has been designated as a National Historic District.
The University of Montevallo is located in the city of Montevallo, Alabama (population 6,000) and is the geographical center of the state. It is 35 miles south of Birmingham.
The City of Montevallo is a pedestrian- and bicyclist-friendly community that offers many local amenities even to students who live on campus. The bike share initiative ValloCycle allows bicycles to be checked out at various check out stations for use for a meager fee. Additionally, Montevallo has a thriving artist community that is showcased in such local events as the Montevallo Artwalk, which is staged several times a year, and the annual Montevallo Art Show that is held in April.
