Life at Saint Vincent

Finding Home at Saint Vincent

We’re here to answer your questions – from residence halls, where to go when you need help, campus spaces, and most importantly, what do we have to eat? While nearly 70 percent of our students choose to live on campus, our commuter students are hardly missing out on any of the fun.

Campus Living

A Community Where You'll Always Belong

Whether it’s accounting or swing dancing; Spanish or Habitat for Humanity; engineering or “Pizza and Politics,” you’ll find people who share your passion. Maybe it’s the Student Government Association that interests you. Or join your friends at one of the lectures, parties, concerts and more scheduled by the Activities Programming Board – they’ve been hosting weekly virtual events.

Stay Active at Any Level

You don’t need to be a varsity athlete to live an active lifestyle. Our students take Yoga, Zumba and other fitness classes. You can also compete in club sports like Men’s Ice Hockey, SVC Cheerleading, SVC Equestrian Team, Saint Vincent Rugby, Ultimate Frisbee and our latest addition, Men's Bowling. Or choose from over a dozen intramural sports:

  • basketball

  • dodgeball
  • flag football
  • soccer
  • softball
  • street hockey
  • Ultimate Frisbee
  • volleyball
  • weightlifting
