Wheeling University

Wheeling University

Founded in 1954, Wheeling University is the only Catholic institution of higher learning in West Virginia. Its mission is to provide a high-quality Catholic education to the men and women of the Ohio Valley region and beyond. By integrating education, research, and economic development with classical knowledge and Christian revelation, Wheeling University seeks to equip its graduates with the critical, creative, and empathetic tools they need to pursue rewarding careers and enrich their local communities. 


Service with and Among Others

In its faculty and students, its research and outreach, the University is national and international.  Wheeling University also values its distinctive mission to the immediate area, educating local men and women and returning them to enrich their own communities. Wheeling University firmly believes its graduates will enter the professional world prepared to use their God-given talents not solely for personal fulfillment but as men and women in service to others.


Wheeling Area 

With students participating in internships and field experiences within the local community, Wheeling certainly earns its reputation of being a small town with big opportunities. 

Situated in the northern panhandle of West Virginia on the Ohio River, Wheeling is a tight-knit, safe community with all the amenities of a large city. Wheeling's charm includes unique stores and shopping complexes, beautiful parks, walking trails, coffee shops and its very own symphony. Local landmark favorites, like Coleman's Fish Market and DiCarlo's for pizza by the slice, are a short walk or bike ride from campus. If a weekend trip with friends is in the cards, Pittsburgh is just an hour away, while Columbus, Cleveland and Charleston are within a three-hour drive from Wheeling. 

Take a look at all the area websites to discover why Wheeling is a great place to shop, eat, work, live, further your career, and relax.  Or visit the Welcome Center.
