The Catholic Student Center at USF is the spiritual home of the Catholic Student Union – a student organization that proudly ministers to all USF students.

We offer both spiritual and recreational activities for our members and anyone else who would like to join. Spiritual activities include retreats, bible studies, faith formation programs, and guest speakers. Recreational activities are wide-reaching and include beach days, tubing trips, camping trips, bowling, movie nights, and much more!

The CSU also participates in community service projects with other campus groups. We are always happy to meet new people and try new things! So come and join us; we would love to meet you!

Students are invited to consider living at Bellarmine Newman Hall (which is right next door to the Catholic Student Center) while attending USF. This unique living and learning community is faith-based and open to students of all faiths or no religious affiliation. There are only nine public universities with this type of student housing in the U.S. The new community features apartment style living, is fully furnished and right across from the USF campus. There is also a pool and lounge area. It is conveniently located next to the USF Catholic Campus Ministry Center. For more information visit: and watch the video below to learn more.

University Ministry – Saint Leo University

University Ministry is grounded in the Catholic Faith and inspired by the charism and spirituality of the Order of St. Benedict (Benedictines), University Ministry is committed to cultivating the faith of all Saint Leo Students. Through their liturgies, they foster personal spiritual growth as well as communal spiritual growth.  They encourage students to participate in the sacramental and liturgical life of the Church in its many expressions, especially in taking part in the worship of the Benedictine Community. Lastly, they provide opportunities for retreats and service trips. It is their desire that the work they do will cultivate their students to be people with lifelong faith.  All are invited to join them in prayer and fellowship!
