Western New England University is a private university in Springfield, Massachusetts. The academic programs are provided through its College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business, College of Engineering, School of Law, and College of Pharmacy. In recognition of its master's and doctoral programs, the institution officially changed its name from Western New England College to Western New England University in 2011. This marked the return of "university" to the school's name, exactly 60 years after separating from Northeastern University. It had long been classified as a university by the Carnegie Foundation.

The campus is located in a suburban neighborhood approximately four miles from downtown Springfield, near the Wilbraham border. Much of the campus property remains undeveloped as forest and open space. Also, there are many clubs and organizations available on campus, including honors societies, professional and departmental cubs, media and publications organizations, special interest groups, the Student Senate, residence hall associations, and campus ministry groups.
