Practical Facilities at our Davenport Campus
Kaplan University’s Davenport campus is the main campus and encompasses 35,000 square feet of specialty built classrooms, computer and medical labs, student lounge facilities, and administrative offices.

Surrounding area info includes businesses such as Hyvee, Walgreens, and McDonalds. Garfield Park is two blocks south of the campus and features a Frisbee golf course.
Bus passes are available at no cost to student and buses frequently drop off at the corner of the school parking lot. Parking is available in the front, on the side, and in the back of the school.
The campus features a student lounge with community information postings, beverage and snack machines, and a comfortable reading area with couches and chairs.
Campus Adopts New Recycling Program
Kaplan University, Davenport campus, has teamed with Great Western Supply Co., City Carton Recycling, and SCA Tissue to become a closed loop campus. The term “closed loop” describes the process in which post-consumer waste materials are converted into new products to be re-used by the original source. In this case, the campus’s shredded office paper, boxes, and old newspapers and magazines are recycled and returned in the form of paper towels and bathroom tissue. Kaplan University, Davenport campus, is believed to be Iowa’s first closed loop higher education campus.
Over the past year, Kaplan University-Davenport has recycled 5,000 lbs of paper through City Carton Recycling. The paper-based recycled materials will be processed through SCA Tissue and distributed back to the campus through Great Western Supply Co.—closing the loop.
The campus has 3 computer labs, each of which can accommodate approximately 25 students. Students are free to use the labs any time the campus is open, as long as they are not being used for classes. In addition, the library and the Academic Success Center have computers for student use.
