November 24, 2023

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) has selected four colleges and universities to host next year’s presidential and vice-presidential debates. These events will be the first opportunities for the party representatives to formally debate political platforms and policies in advance of the general election. CPD will share more details about the debates, including format and moderators, in 2024.

Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, will host the first general election debate Sept. 16. It will be the first university in Texas to hold a presidential debate, school officials said.

The university has the distinction of being the only university in Texas to claim a U.S. president – Lyndon Baines Johnson – as an alumnus. The debate will be held on-campus at the Strahan Arena in the University Events Center.

Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania, will hold the only vice-presidential debate Sept. 25. This is the first time the college has been selected to host a general election debate. The debate will be held at the Kirby Sports Center.

Virginia State University (VSU) in Petersburg, Virginia, will host the second presidential debate Oct. 1. It will be the first historically black college or university on record to host a general election debate. The debate will be held in the VSU Multipurpose Center.

The University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah, will hold the third and final presidential debate Oct. 9. During the 2020 election, the university was selected to host the vice-presidential debate. The upcoming presidential debate will be held at Kingsbury Hall.
