Converse University's main campus is located in Spartanburg, in the Upstate region of South Carolina. Spartanburg is a city full of exciting attractions, beautiful scenery, historically significant sites, and friendly people. As the sixth-largest city in the state (population: 45,000), Spartanburg is South Carolina’s melting pot, mixing Southern culture and hospitality with traditions and cultures of other countries.
Spartanburg’s ideal proximity to the North Carolina mountains, the South Carolina coast, and major cities such as Atlanta and Charlotte make Spartanburg a very attractive place to live. Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, located twenty minutes west of the city, is served by a number of major airlines. The Converse campus is located in downtown Spartanburg on seventy landscaped acres.
In July 2018 Converse opened a location in Greenville, South Carolina at the University Center of Greenville. At this location, Converse offers select graduate programs to provide convenient access to students in the area and will help to fill Greenville’s workforce development needs. The University Center of Greenville is a higher education collaborative of seven leading, accredited, and highly ranked South Carolina universities and colleges. The University Center’s mission is to advance access and attainment of higher education degrees for the benefit of the citizens and economic community of greater Greenville, S.C. and the region at large.
