Meet our expert faculty and see why we've been named a top-25 university in the Western Region by U.S. News & World Report for the past 18 years.
Our beautiful hilltop campus gives you the best of both worlds: a close-knit community, complemented by a dynamic city. When you're on campus — home to more than 1,000 trees — you'll have access to state-of-the-art learning and recreation buildings. St. Edward's is located on South Congress Avenue, which is lined with some of Austin's most iconic restaurants, and only a few miles from downtown.

Deciphering the real cost of college can be complicated, but it doesn't have to be. It starts by understanding what you'll pay after you're awarded scholarships and grants. At St. Edward's, the average tuition paid by first-year students is less than half the sticker price.
