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.  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.
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.
