The ten largest university campuses in the United States, Fall 2020
Zoomed in view of the schools in Florida which are top ten in enrollment, 2019-2020

This list of largest United States public university campuses by enrollment includes only individual four-year campuses, not four-year universities. Universities can have multiple campuses with a single administration.

What this list includes:

  • A single individual campus with a single physical location of a four-year public university within the United States.
  • Enrollment is the sum of the headcount of undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Enrollment is counted by the 21st-day headcount, as provided to the United States Department of Education under the Common Data Set program.
  • Campuses that have small secondary physical locations that are not reported separately (for extended education, outreach, etc.) are indicated with a footnote.

What this list does not include:

Not all enrollment counts are directly comparable. See notes. For other lists that measure university enrollment, see the see also section below.
