North Greenville University is located in Tigerville in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Tigerville is a pastoral community 18 miles north of Greenville, South Carolina, the state's largest metropolitan area, less than 12 miles from Greer and about 35 miles from Spartanburg with easy access to I-85, I-26, and US 276 and 25. The campus setting provides a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains, with the campus itself situated on the summit of a rolling hill amid acres of university-owned land. Most of the buildings on the campus have been constructed in the past few decades replacing older buildings which were erected during the first 100 years of the university's history.
