About St. Francis Xavier University

St. Francis Xavier University offers what so many of Canada's top students are seeking: a high quality education, focused principally on the undergraduate, in a vibrant residential setting. Recognized as one of the finest schools in Canada, StFX is meeting the needs of today's undergraduates through outstanding teaching, exceptional hands-on research experiences, the very best in a residential community, and unique opportunities to make a contribution to communities at home and abroad.

Campus information

The StFX campus is renowned for its beautiful ivy-league architecture, limestone residences, and pedestrian-friendly layout. With rich traditions, house loyalties, theatre, sporting events, Starbucks and fair trade coffee, campus pubs, musical events and so much more, stfx is a vibrant community where students thrive.


Students have been falling in love with Antigonish since StFX moved here more than a century and a half ago. Whether gathering for a post-exam meal at Gabrieau’s Bistro on Main Street, blowing off a little steam at The Tall and Small Café, enjoying a moment of self-reflection on the Brierly Brook bridge, or taking part in the thrilling Highland Games, the young men and women who attend StFX are as proud of their adopted town as they are of their school.
