The Jesuit students who enroll in the College of Philosophy and Letters normally reside in the Bellarmine House of Studies, comprised of four houses located in a residential neighborhood near the Saint Louis University campus. The Jesuit community at Bellarmine typically includes both scholastics and brothers in studies, as well as some Jesuits who have finished their religious formation.
Residency in the Bellarmine House is typically about three years, usually terminating
in a certificate, bachelor’s degree or master’s degree from Saint Louis University.
Jesuit students also spend approximately eight hours each week engaged in direct apostolic endeavors, on campus or at selected parishes, schools or social ministry sites around the city.
