Since 1851, Saint Joseph's University has provided rigorous liberal arts education built upon the Ignatian credo of cura personalis, focused on the growth and development of the whole person. 

Our Conference and Event Services team has the same mission: caring for every aspect of our guests' experience. We offer meeting rooms, fully equipped classrooms, overnight lodging, worship space, nourishing meals, and recreational facilities. Our beautiful campus is a blend of historic and state-of-the-art facilities, just 15 minutes from the vibrant cultural hub of Center City Philadelphia. Saint Joseph's unique location in both Lower Merion and Philadelphia combines the best of both the suburbs and the city.
