When you choose a college, you’re also choosing a community.
At Saint Joseph’s University, you will be supported and inspired to find your unique path. You will have access to internships, co-ops and learning experiences and will gain a lifelong network to help you find your passion and achieve your career goals. There are countless opportunities to connect with the Hawk community, including joining one of our 90+ student organizations, an intramural sports team, or one of our ministry and community service programs. There’s always something going on, and the average Hawk joins three clubs during their time here.
Located in the vibrant city of Philadelphia, our 125-acre Hawk Hill campus and 24-acre University City location offer access to the endless opportunities the nation’s sixth largest city has to offer. Additionally, Saint Joseph’s University provides several safe, comfortable and inclusive housing options where you can socialize, learn from others and develop friendships that will last a lifetime.

Steps From the City
With two locations, Saint Joseph’s University offers the best combination of suburban tranquility and downtown energy. Our Hawk Hill campus is partially located on Philadelphia’s Main Line, offering sprawling green space and easy access to Center City via train or bus. Our University City location is conveniently located just west of Center City and is bordered by tree-lined streets and picturesque Clark Park. Our ideal Philadelphia location allows us to provide a range of housing options for students’ evolving needs, from traditional residence halls to an on-campus residential community for students in recovery. To help you truly feel at home, we also offer fresh, nutritious dining options and flexible meal plans that fit every student’s needs.
Nourish your faith, develop your leadership skills and explore immersive experiences when you take part in ministry and service at Saint Joseph’s. Whether you’re looking for a daylong project or a more immersive experience, we maintain a diverse roster of volunteer opportunities that make it easy to join fellow students in showing your solidarity with others in our community. We welcome students of every religion to join in on our transformative programming, from community service projects to spiritual retreats, and encourage students to practice the Jesuit principle of “proximity” — being close to and deeply engaged in the communities we serve.
