Saint Xavier University is a four-year private college located in a quiet residential neighborhood in Chicago. Founded in 1846, we are Chicago's oldest Catholic university. Saint Xavier offers an excellent educational experience within a friendly, supportive campus atmosphere. We also offer generous scholarship opportunities to make a college education affordable. These are some of the many reasons why Saint Xavier was recognized by U.S. News and World Report as among the 2017 Top 10 Best Value Regional Universities in the Midwest.
