Herzing University is a private nonprofit university with its headquarters in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and several locations throughout the United States. The university offers degrees in professions including nursing, technology, business and healthcare.


Herzing University was founded by Henry and Suzanne Herzing in 1965 as a computer training institute in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In 1970 the company was established as Herzing Institute, and the organization started to grow through the acquisition of other schools. The name of the University had changed again to Herzing College in 1996. Over the course of years, Herzing has grown to include 11 ground campuses in the United States, plus an online division. In 2009, with the addition of graduate programs, the company was renamed to Herzing University. In 2015, Herzing University became a nonprofit institution.

Currently, Herzing University’s corporate headquarters are located in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. This is also the current location of the online division.[1]


Students have the option to attend one of the 11 ground campuses in eight U.S. states[2] or earn their degree fully online. Students can also take some online classes while taking other classes at one of the ground campuses.
