Campus Life

St. Kate’s is small enough that you know, or at least recognize, most people on campus. But it’s not just about size. An unusually strong sense of mutual support exists here among students, faculty and staff. Together, we're building a vibrant community.

Some of the most important lessons you'll learn at St. Kate's have nothing to do with books or teachers. We're talking about life on campus.

At St. Kate's, we work hard and we play hard. We believe in the power of the mind and the power of the body. That's why we offer great programs not only in academics, but also in athletics.

St. Kate's offers intercollegiate sports and scores of intramural activities. But even if you don't play on a team, you won't be able to resist our state-of-the-art sports, workout and spa facilities. Whether you're a serious athlete or a casual exerciser, the Butler Center is equipped for you.

With everything that goes on here, it's hard to get bored. You can participate in dozens of University-sponsored clubs and activities, work on student publications or get active in student government. You can hear great live music, attend theater performances and be part of cultural celebrations and events right on campus.

With two of the most exciting and safest cities in the country right outside our front gate, you'll want to explore the Twin Cities, too. You can also take classes, socialize or just hang out with new friends at any of the four co-ed colleges close by in the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities (ACTC) consortium.

Residential life is about having a great place not only to study, but to live — a place to call home. Living on campus is convenient and fun, which is why 80 percent of first-year students choose to live in St. Kate's residence halls.

At St. Kate's, student life is as important as our academic programs. Our busy student affairs office helps manage everything from volunteer opportunities to the Health and Wellness Center. Whether you're looking for help with homework or information about how to start a new club, we'll provide the help and services you need.
