About UD

More Than a University Experience

The University of Dallas attracts highly motivated students who seek to attend a top-ranked liberal arts university, participate in a one-of-a-kind Rome semester abroad experience, and build life-long friendships with fellow students and faculty.

UD offers bachelor's, master's, doctoral and continuing education programs to more than 1,400 undergraduate students and 1,200 graduate students from across the U.S. and the world. 

Founded in 1955, the university is a highly-ranked Catholic university that consistently enjoys a spot in the top 15 Catholic colleges nationwide by Forbes and the top 10 Catholic colleges in the West by U.S. News & World Reports. UD’s summer programs for gifted high school students rank in the top 20 in the nation.

The university has two campuses: the Irving campus, located in a suburb of Dallas/Fort Worth, and the Eugene Constantin campus, located south of Rome, Italy.
