Our Campus

Situated on 100 acres in the heart of Mississippi’s capital city of Jackson, Millsaps College offers students the feeling of a tight-knit community. The majority of our students make the choice to live on campus, not only because of the convenience of being close to classes and campus facilities, but also because of the opportunity to make the most of their college experience with their friends close by.

The campus location also makes it easy for students to visit the Fondren and Belhaven neighborhoods, areas full of restaurants, shops, music venues and coffee shops.

What It’s Like in Jackson, Mississippi

Jackson is a nexus for talented people who want to work together, whether they are looking for the next big thing or for an opportunity to contribute. The metro area has a population of 539,000 people. With over 35,000 college students, Jackson is a great community for young people who are eager to be involved. Socially networked, dynamic and affordable, Jackson is a city on the move — a place of opportunity that’s always getting better.

Getting here is easy. Jackson is served by five major airlines and is just down the road from Birmingham, Memphis and New Orleans. For Millsaps students — who inevitably fall in love with the place — it’s leaving that’s hard.
