Transylvania’s location in Lexington, Kentucky, gives you the best of both worlds—a small, friendly campus and a large, metropolitan city.
Lexington’s population of 300,000 means there are plenty of opportunities for having fun, finding a part-time job or internship, or taking advantage of the city’s cultural attractions. There are more than 30,000 college students in the Lexington area, and Kiplinger's recently named Lexington one of the top cities for young single adults.
As Kentucky’s second largest city, Lexington is a regional center for entertainment, sports, the arts, museums, and many other attractions. Some of the most famous horse farms in the world surround the city, giving it a beautiful setting.
Lexington is located at the crossroads of Interstate 75 and Interstate 64 and within a day’s drive of two-thirds of the country’s population. Major and regional airlines serve the city’s Blue Grass Airport.
