Benedictine University


Benedictine University was founded in Chicago, Illinois as St. Procopius College in 1887. In 1901 the College moved to Lisle, in DuPage County, and the first building, Benedictine Hall, was dedicated in September 1901. The College became Benedictine University in 1996.

Benedictine University’s rolling, tree-covered campus in Lisle, Illinois comprises ten major buildings with air-conditioned classrooms and modern, well-equipped laboratories. Facilities include a comprehensive learning center with full media library and a modern science facility, and a student athletic center with three full-size basketball courts, a competition-size swimming pool, three tennis courts, and training facilities.

Class sizes are small, and our faculty provides personal attention to our students. Financial aid is available to those who qualify. The Benedictine University Career Development Department assists grads to transition to rewarding careers or post-graduate education.
