Meet the Jesuits

Regis University is blessed with two Jesuit Residences. The Jesuits House is located on Regis University's northwest Denver campus and the Xavier Jesuit Center is just north of campus. 

Jesuits House is located at the top of the hill directly west of St. John Francis Regis Chapel. Nearly all the Jesuits serving at Regis University and all those assigned to Arrupe Jesuit High School live at Jesuit House. 

Xavier Jesuit Center has one Jesuit serving at Regis University and a number of members who offer spiritual ministry to Regis, to Arrupe Jesuit High School and several parishes in the Denver metro area. Regis University and Arrupe Jesuit High School are seven minute distance from one another. A number of Arrupe graduates go on to study at Regis.
