Saint Martin’s University is an independent, four-year, coeducational university located on a wooded campus of more than 300 acres in Lacey, Washington. Established in 1895 by the Catholic Order of Saint Benedict. Saint Martin’s welcomes more than 1,300 undergraduate students and 250 graduate students from many ethnic and religious backgrounds to its Lacey campus, and more students to its extended campus located at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.


Established in 1895, Saint Martin’s University serves as the educational mission of Saint Martin’s Abbey.  The Abbey is a Catholic Benedictine monastery, whose members pray, work, and live together on the University campus.  As the mission is Catholic and Benedictine, one of our values is a spirit of hospitality welcoming all, regardless of an individual’s faith, religion, or spirituality. 


Essential features of University life are animated by its Benedictine identity and its participation in the centuries-old traditions of Catholic intellectual thought and the search for truth.


Thus, the University honors students and guides them towards achieving academic excellence. Superior teaching is the expected norm. Rooted in the long tradition of the liberal arts, the University curriculum cultivates creativity and the ability to communicate and pursue ideas; critical thinking and independent inquiry; academic proficiency; the formation of sound ethical judgments; and service to humanity.


Reflecting the Benedictine virtue of hospitality, the University welcomes and, indeed, seeks students and employees not only from the Pacific Northwest, but also from other parts of the nation and the world at its main and extension campuses. Saint Martin’s treasures persons of all ages, religions, and nationalities as it encourages cognizance of diverse viewpoints and an appreciation of all cultures.


Money Magazine ranked Saint Martin’s University the No. 1 Best Value for Small Private Colleges in Washington state for a second straight year and placed No. 8 in Best Value for Small Colleges in the West, a region which is comprised of Alaska, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. Ranked by Niche as the second (#2) most diverse private college in Washington State in 2020. Saint Martin’s is extremely proud of our student diversity.  Our university treasures persons of all abilities, ages, ethnicities, genders, nationalities, orientations, races, and religions.  In particular, we know that students educated in an ethnically diverse setting perform better academically and reap greater professional success than their peers from more homogeneous learning environments. We proudly celebrate that our student population is 51% undergraduate and 32% graduate students of color.  We are committed to pursuing an employee community that reflects a similar, if not the same percentage.  


Therefore, we intentionally encourage and request that members of historically underrepresented groups apply to join this community.  All of us, from all backgrounds, are making a commitment to do and be better for our students, faculty, and staff.


The Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering at Saint Martin's University offers ABET-accredited undergraduate programs in mechanical and civil engineering, computer science, and information technology and graduate programs in civil engineering, mechanical engineering, environmental engineering, engineering management and computer science. The School moved into Cebula Hall in 2013, at the time the highest-rated LEED certified building in the Western Hemisphere, and completed a new lab building in 2016, where the majority of our computer science program courses are taught. A recent major Engineering Initiative has led to new facilities, a larger faculty, and exciting opportunities for enhancing programs.
