Campus Life

Learning together

As a parent in university, it’s important to know that your children are safe, happy, and learning while you’re in class. At Saint Mary’s University, you can keep your kids close by enrolling your little ones in our on-site daycare or your school-age children in one of the many schools in our area.

On-campus daycare
