The Saint Mary’s campus is picturesque and welcoming, nestled in the Moraga Valley 20 miles east of San Francisco. Be sure to bring your camera when you visit campus, as it’s a pretty photogenic place. (And if you get any good shots, we’d love to see them— you could wind up on our homepage!)
If you’re planning a visit to campus, we have all the information you’ll need about getting here by air, car, or public transit; guides to places to stay and things to do when you’re here; and of course, a campus map. We look forward to meeting you! Want a sneak preview of what you'll find when you get here? Take a virtual tour of our campus.
About Our Campus
The center of our campus (and the star of most campus beauty shots) is our chapel. Designed in the Mission Renaissance style like most of the campus, our chapel is a place of reflection and consideration for all students, no matter their religious or cultural backgrounds. A tour of the chapel will lead you to see some remarkable works of sculpture and mosaic, many hundreds of years old.
Surrounding the chapel, and forming the heart of the Saint Mary’s campus, are eight buildings that date back to the College’s 1928 move to Moraga. These include academic buildings, such as Galileo Hall and Dante Hall, as well as residence halls like Aquinas, Assumption and De La Salle hall. The open spaces between these buildings, as well as the main green in front of our chapel, are the primary gathering places on campus.
Of course, Saint Mary’s has grown a lot since 1928, and new buildings continue to rise on our campus. Our newer buildings, like Brousseau Hall and Filippi Academic Hall, have state-of-the-art facilities and modern technology, but are built to the same master architectural plan as our original structures.
