A CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY and sister school to the University of Notre Dame, St. Edward’s University cultivates critical thinking and social service among its nearly 4,500 students, most of whom are undergraduates. Its serene and challenging liberal arts learning environment is situated only blocks from some of Austin’s favorite hangouts.

The 160-acre hilltop campus overlooks the thriving downtown Austin area. In recent years, the campus has welcomed new buildings, including a library, natural sciences center, and auditorium. Recently renovated facilities include the campus recreation gym, chapel, and ministry building. The Munday Library was made possible through the single gift of $13 million from Bill and Pat Munday.

The John Brooks Williams Natural Sciences Center houses computer science, mathematics, and bioinformatics programs, while the 126-seat Carter Auditorium functions as a lecture and performance hall. St. Edward’s Wild Basin Creative Research Center is an interdisciplinary natural resource laboratory that provides hands-on learning. The university added on-campus living for nearly 450 students with a new apartment complex that opened in fall 2018.

St. Edward’s is recognized as a Hispanic-Serving Institution and nearly 40 languages are spoken on campus, making for a diverse community. The school offers more than 50 undergraduate and seven graduate programs. Along with a network of 21 partner universities in 15 countries, a branch campus in Angers, France, was founded in 2008.
