CHARTERED BY THE Republic of Texas in 1845, the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (UMHB) is dedicated to preparing students for lives of leadership, service, and faith-informed discernment in a global society. Academic excellence, personal attention, broad-based scholarship, and a Baptist vision for education have distinguished our Christ-centered learning community for 170 years.

Located in Belton, the university’s campus is serene, like the city itself. More than 3,900 students attend classes on the 265-acre campus, where they live in seven single-gender residence halls and three modern apartment complexes. Lake Belton’s pathways and caves offer nearby recreation, and several restaurants and shops can be found in neighboring Temple. UMHB’s location, just off I-35, makes it convenient for students to travel home.

A member of the Baptist General Convention of Texas, the university encourages faith-based activities and offers numerous student ministry groups and service opportunities. Student athletes compete on 12 teams at the NCAA Division III level in the American Southwest Conference. The university does not support a Greek system, but it does have more than 50 student organizations and annual traditions like the Miss Mary Hardin-Baylor and Easter pageants.
