Lambuth University was a liberal arts university located in Jackson, Tennessee, and active from 1843 to 2011. 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.

After several years of financial struggles, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools opted not to renew Lambuth's accreditation in 2011. Due to both the financial and accreditation problems, the Board of Trustees voted in April 2011 to cease operations on June 20, 2011.[1] Final commencement exercises were held April 30, 2011.[2]

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