Why Choose Saint Xavier?

Saint Xavier University is a distinguished four-year private institution located in the scenic Southwest Chicago neighborhood of Mt. Greenwood. Founded in 1846 by the Sisters of Mercy, Saint Xavier is Chicago's oldest Catholic university. SXU offers a great educational experience with high quality academics all within a friendly, supportive campus atmosphere.

Saint Xavier is home to approximately 4,000 students at the undergraduate and graduate level from 45 different states and 13 different countries. With undergraduate majors and graduate program options, Saint Xavier University has something for everyone.

We know the cost of college is a factor in the college decision for many students and families. We work to make sure cost is not a barrier to a Saint Xavier University education. 100% of new, full-time undergraduate students receive a scholarship towards the cost of tuition. Many are also eligible for additional need-based aid opportunities.

As a result of our strong academic programs and generous financial aid, Saint Xavier University is recognized by the U.S. News & World Report as among the 2017 Top 10 Best Value Regional Universities in the Midwest.

We believe a Saint Xavier education transforms the lives of our students, alums, and our community, and we would love to show you more of what Saint Xavier University has to offer.
