SHU Main Campus
Signs of the University's growth and vibrancy are evident. Enrollment has risen from the original class of 173 to 6000 full and part-time undergraduate and graduate students, and the faculty has increased from 9 to 187 full-time professors and over 300 adjunct professors.
The University has enhanced the undergraduate student experience in several notable ways. In 1990, it accepted for the first time students who wanted the residential experience. The first dorms, Scholars Commons (Previously known as J-Hill), were built 1991. It now has 10 residential buildings with 70% of the full-time undergraduates residing in university housing.
New degree programs and majors in relevant disciplines are regularly added to the curriculum. The University offers Division I athletics with 32 varsity teams. The $17.5 million William H. Pitt Health and Recreation Center is available to all students and to the community at large. Recognizing the importance of technology, Sacred Heart University provides all undergraduate students with a laptop computer. The University campus is a wireless environment.
On Sunday, September 27, 2009, Sacred Heart University dedicated and opened its new chapel. The worship space, following the teachings of Vatican Council II has been named the Chapel of the Holy Spirit.
