Campus Community

When you choose a college, you’re also choosing a community. 

Our campus, affectionately known as Hawk Hill, is home to an active community of students and faculty who share your values, passions and boundless curiosity.

Steps From the City

We're located in Philadelphia, and downtown, with its vast cultural and professional opportunities, is a short train ride from campus. Whether you’re interning at a high-profile company, catching a show at the famed Walnut Street Theatre or chowing down at Reading Terminal Market, exploring the city is a favorite pastime of many Hawks.

“SJU did an amazing job of giving me the opportunities to succeed after college. Whether that be through experience with clubs, opportunities to network or just by having a staff which is engaged and willing to help.”
