The Gonzaga experience
Gonzaga University requires first-year and sophomore students to live on campus. Campus life is an exciting blend of maintaining a rigorous academic schedule while fully embracing the vibrant social atmosphere by spending time with close friends. GU offers more than 140 student organizations in areas such as music, theater, cultural clubs, community service, student government, and faith-sharing groups and retreats, as well as Division I athletic teams and club and intramural sports. 

In the heart of the Inland Northwest
With nearly 722,000 residents, the Spokane–Coeur d’Alene area provides numerous internships as well as outlets for cultural and artistic expression.

An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “Everyone talked about how connected they felt at Gonzaga, and that was something I really wanted too. As I did more research, every one of my boxes got checked along the way. I kind of took a leap of faith coming here, and everything has been great ever since.”

    • Jerry Xue
      Honolulu, Hawai’i | Business Administration
  • “Gonzaga is a school that’s going to teach you a lot academically. It’s going to teach you a lot about yourself, but it’s also going to grow you into the person you never thought you could be.”

    • Alex Campbell
      Renton, Washington | Sociology
  • “Gonzaga offers a challenging embrace. It welcomes you, and it also expects you to grow and change.”

    • Erik Hirschman
      Washington, DC | Biology
  • “You definitely get the sense of the big city, but Gonzaga still feels small. I’m not sure why that is; maybe it’s because we live so close to downtown, or maybe it’s because people are so genuine here.”

    • Jason “Bunji” McLeod
      Bellingham, Washington, Mechanical Engineering
  • “At Gonzaga, you’re forced to be critical and curious about diverse topics and to find the intersections of all these diverse people’s passions to form your own.”
