Where is CIU?

CIU is out in the country and close to town, offering the best of both worlds. Our quiet, cozy campus is just a few miles from the heart of Columbia, South Carolina’s capital city.

Sitting at the highest peak in Columbia, our campus overlooks the Broad River.

What to Do

You can make the best of your college days engaging with other students on campus. You will have opportunities to build relationships, attend social events, participate in house competitions, or attend athletic events.

After the games, join other students in the Ram Shack for pizza, wings and camaraderie.

Hit the trails for a walk or run, sit by the lake or if you like to fish, cast your line to see what’s biting.

The fitness center is open daily for your morning, afternoon or evening workout.

Our 400-acre campus is not far from local shopping malls, state parks, museums and downtown Columbia.
