Campus information

From its founding Xavier has embraced a special mission to serve the African American Catholic community; however, its doors have always been open to qualified students of every race and creed. Today 69.7 percent of its enrollment is African American and 26 percent is Catholic. More than one-half of Xavier students are from Louisiana (55.6%), primarily from the New Orleans area. Non-local enrollment continues to increase with students coming from 40 other states – most notably Texas and Georgia. Fifteen foreign countries are represented on campus. Student life is enriched by the social and cultural setting of New Orleans, and by campus activities designed to enhance personal growth, interpersonal skills, and leadership in such areas as community service, the environment, cultural concerns, and social justice.       

Xavier University of Louisiana is located in New Orleans in what is sometimes referred to as the Triangle, near Carrollton, Washington, and I-10. Xavier is located in the heart of New Orleans, La., and is easily accessible by car via the I-10 system
