Experience Life as a Hawk
The best way to get a feel for life as a Hawk is to experience Saint Joseph’s for yourself. We offer a variety of in-person and virtual visit opportunities to explore our 125-acre campus, which crosses a vibrant Philadelphia neighborhood and sprawling Lower Merion suburbs.
Starting July 13, 2020, Saint Joseph's University is resuming in person campus tours for prospective undergraduate students. In order to ensure the health and safety of our University community and guests, we have established visitor guidelines and are limiting tour capacity to ensure social distancing. Additional information is available below.
