About Wheeling Jesuit University

Founded on the 450-year Jesuit tradition of academic excellence and service to others, Wheeling Jesuit University will provide you with outstanding educational offerings, cutting-edge research opportunities, and ways to have an influence in the community for the greater good of all.

The entire Wheeling Jesuit community is working together to create a university at which education is second to none, where research flourishes, and students can make a difference in the lives of others.

Campus information

Involvement on campus is a hallmark of our students. You could be standing on stage in a production at Troy Theater or floating down whitewater rapids at one of the Adventure Society's outdoor odysseys. You might join Campus Ministry, play an instrument in the pep band or end up auditioning for 'Jesuit Idol.' Maybe you'll write a column for the Cardinal Connection, our student-run newspaper. Whatever it is that interests you, you'll find an outlet on our campus.

Weekends at Wheeling Jesuit are full of excitement. The Ratt, our on-campus pub, hosts bands every Friday along with theme nights throughout the year. Our Campus Activities Board plans weekends year-round for students, including the annual Last Blast weekend, complete with inflatables, obstacle courses, rock climbing, concerts and a highly competitive raft race down Wheeling Creek.

If you're looking for a great workout, the McDonough Center isn't just a place for varsity athletes; it's a resource for all students. Consider it your own 107,000 square-foot health club. You can run laps on the indoor and outdoor tracks, play racquetball, pump iron, get in some cardio at the fitness center, swim laps in the pool or shoot hoops in the gym. Many activities are offered to ensure your body is as healthy as your mind.


Wheeling Jesuit University designed their Housing & Residence Life program to contribute to your development by creating a positive living and learning environment. The university is continuously creating and enhancing programs directed toward educating you. They also offer supportive services to assist you with any special needs you may bring to the campus.

The Area Coordinators, Resident Assistants, and Desk Attendants will help you with your transition to the campus,  to form friendships with other floor members, and to encourage your participation in floor activities.

You will have the opportunity to form an intramural team, join efforts in charitable events, and participate in residence hall programs including such topics as time management, study skills, developing healthy relationships, and a variety of other personal development issues. Many of the programs offered qualify for credit in the University's Wellness Program.

The residence halls are located in three residential areas:  Sara Tracy/Kirby Area, Campion/McHugh Area, and Ignatius/Thomas More.  Each area is supervised by a full time Area Coordinator.
