We have all of the opportunities an extremely large university can offer, with the comforts of a small, private institution. Even with over 19,000 students, you are more than just a number here.
You get a more personal, deeper educational experience here. We keep our classes on the smaller side so that you can get to know your classmates and professors.
Faculty and staff are here to mentor you—and they love to help! Our students consistently rave about the connections they make with their professors and how those connections help them through their college journey.
You can get experience in the "real world" alongside your classroom time because UL Lafayette is closely connected to local and global industries. You’ll have hands-on experience in labs, across campus, around Lafayette and throughout the region.
Our Cajun and Creole cultures influence your campus experience. We’re friendly, connected, and one big family. We take care of each other because we all truly care about each other.
