    A Campus Close to the Action

    With 110 acres of meandering pathways, rolling hills, woods and a pond, the St. Kate’s campus is a peaceful, beautiful oasis — and just minutes away from the excitement of both downtown St. Paul and downtown Minneapolis. From the student center veranda overlooking Dew Drop Pond to the new residence halls to sophisticated instrumentation in the science labs, the campus offers both the resources you need to learn and the comforts of home you want (and then some). Within easy walking distance of campus in the Highland Park neighborhood are coffee shops, pizzerias and other restaurants, bookstores and a movie theater.

    While You're on Campus

    In addition to registering for a campus visit or information session, we welcome you to explore all that our campus has to offer. Here are just a few things you may want to check out.

    • Grab a coffee at The Pulse then relax on a bench overlooking the Dew Drop Pond, with the Minneapolis skyline beyond.
    • Keep your eyes open for white squirrels, who came to our campus from the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.
    • Try the fresh sushi in the dining hall, followed by one of the scrumptious desserts.
    • Stop into the Catherine G. Murphy Gallery, which exhibits international, national and regional artists.
    • Cheer on the Katie’s basketball team at the Butler Athletic Center.
    • Stop by the Information Center in Coeur de Catherine for help finding anything on campus (and help yourself to the free candy).
    • Looking for recommendations on a hotel, reservations for a restaurant or tickets to a show or game? Your St. Kate’s admission counselor is happy to help.
