About Santa Clara University

Situated adjacent to San Jose in Silicon Valley, Santa Clara's tranquil campus is centered upon the historic Mission Santa Clara de Asis which was founded in 1776. The campus spans 106 acres and includes more than 50 buildings in the Mission Revival architectural style. These include 10 residence halls, the Centre for Performing Arts, a 2,200 square-foot digital production suite, the de Saisset museum, and expansive athletic facilities. The Broncos make good use of these facilities, fielding 20 Division 1 athletic teams, and are strongly supported by The Ruff Riders, the official student booster club of SCU athletics and the largest organization on campus.

Santa Clara is the oldest operating university in California and is proud of its Catholic and Jesuit heritage and identity. While only around half of the 8,500 enrolled students are Catholic, many non-Catholic students at SCU choose to attend weekly Mass as part of their participation in the university community. Nearly every program incorporates some aspect of Jesuit values, which aim to develop the whole person. All undergraduate programs require three religious studies courses as part of the academic core. SCU also offers Masters programs through the schools of Engineering, Business, Education, Law and Jesuit Theology.
