Kansas City University was a private Methodist university in Kansas City, Kansas[1] that was founded 1896[2] and ceased operations in 1933.[3] During the term of college president D. S. Stephens, the university was the site of a church conference between United Brethren and Methodist church conferences where a controversial merger was discussed.[4]

It was the successor-in-interest of Lane University and Campbell College (Kansas).
