Campus Master Plan

In recent decades, Saint Joseph’s University — a highly ranked Jesuit university founded in 1851 and located in Main Line Philadelphia — has nearly doubled its campus footage and now stands at an impressive 125 acres. Uniquely, the University’s beautiful campus on City Avenue transects vibrant urban neighborhoods and historic suburbs founded by some of America’s earliest settlers.

 

In line with our ambitious strategic plan, Thinking Anew, Acting Anew, we are embarking on a bold, aspirational Campus Master Plan that will position Saint Joseph’s for the next several decades. The plan aims to modernize and unify the campus, upgrade and contemporize our facilities, and ultimately create a world-class student experience.

 

We invite you to explore a conceptual vision for our reimagined campus. To learn more, contact (610) 660-1249.

MAIN CAMPUS DISTRICT

The master plan aims to transform the front door to the University’s main campus. Prospective students and visitors will enter through the stunning Maguire Wolfington Center on the Wolfington Campus and find a newly developed residential quad and a state-of-the-art student center.

MAGUIRE CAMPUS DISTRICT

With the majority of the University’s footprint in the Merion side of campus, it is essential that SJU fully activate this property, making it a hub for student life. With a renovated wellness and recreation center, outdoor recreational spaces, improved parking and the potential for new academic buildings, access to this portion of campus will dramatically increase.

CITY AVENUE PEDESTRIAN UNDERPASS

A major goal of the master plan is to connect the campus’ two hearts on either side of City Avenue and create a safe and efficient means of crossing between them.
