Lambuth University was a liberal arts university located in Jackson, Tennessee. It was supported by the Memphis Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. Lambuth's athletic teams participated in the NAIA's TranSouth and Mid-South Conferences. The university began as the Memphis Conference Female Institute in 1843 and was later renamed in honor of Walter Russell Lambuth (1854–1921), a Methodist missionary who traveled globally during his lifetime.

Lambuth University ceased operations in June 2011 following several years of financial difficulties. [1] Due to the university's financial struggles, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools opted not to renew Lambuth's accreditation in 2011; however, an injunction issued in federal court allowed Lambuth to retain its accreditation until the time it closed. Final commencement exercises were held April 30, 2011.[2]

During the summer of 2011, The University of Memphis acquired the Lambuth University campus and began offering four-year degrees there on August 29, 2011. The campus is now known as The University of Memphis - Lambuth Campus.
