GVSU is consistently ranked as one of the top universities in the Princeton Review and U.S. News and World Report. Located 30 minutes from Lake Michigan and 20 minutes from Grand Rapids, Grand Valley State University's Allendale Campus is the perfect location to host your summer camp, conference, or a place to stay during a quick get away.
While on campus, we have many activities for our guests to enjoy. Take a look! If you are wanting to explore the area, Grand Rapids is the West Michigan hub of food, craft breweries, art, and entertainment.
