The Olga S. Peers Academic Center for Student-Athletes at the University of Louisville is the finest academic facility in the nation. Student-athletes can come for academic assistance for more that 90 hours a week.


The academic, resident life, and student life units of the Athletics Department support student-athletes through assessment, counseling and skill development services so they may balance their academic and athletic responsibilities and maximize their potential.
