In 2018, Saint Joseph’s University and the Barnes Foundation launched an educational partnership expanding opportunities for students and the surrounding community to engage in horticulture education and the arts. Named for long-term devotee of the arts and education, the Frances M. Maguire Art Museum was renovated to enhance learning spaces and accessibility for arts education, programming and fine arts exhibits. The project was fully funded through philanthropy and a grand opening is planned for spring of 2023.

Many Jesuits enrich academic and campus life as the sponsoring apostolic community of Saint Joseph’s University. Therefore, the University partnered with the Jesuit East Province to bring a new Jesuit residence to campus, Arrupe Hall. The newly opened residence, located in the heart of campus on Lapsley Lane, allows Jesuits from Saint Joseph’s and other Philadelphia locations to live and work together in a collaborative, active ministry. Arrupe Hall builds upon the University’s strong Jesuit identity and tradition, and is designed to be a hub of activity for the Jesuit community, providing new academic, sacramental and pastoral opportunities on campus. Construction was funded by the Province on land provided by Saint Joseph’s. The Jesuit community moved into their new home in April of 2021.
