Welcome to the Only Norbertine College in the World

Since 1121, members of the religious order founded by Norbert of Xanten have embraced a tradition of radical hospitality. Today, at St. Norbert College, that same tradition is enthusiastically extended to you. At St. Norbert, all are welcome.

Our campus is community-driven and focused on the story you’re creating. We are as committed to developing your personal journey as we are to your professional aspirations. St. Norbert College is the place for your story to unfold.

Our History. Your Future.

As one of the nation’s top Catholic liberal arts colleges, St. Norbert enjoys a proud history and a foundation rooted in tradition. When Norbert of Xanten founded the Norbertine order of priests in the 12th century, he could little have imagined the impact his life and mission would have on the world nearly nine centuries later. Today, at St. Norbert College, the spirit of Norbert lives through this modern, bustling riverfront community dedicated to transforming and empowering a new generation of world-changers.

The Spirit and Tradition of Communio

Just as Norbert invited others to join him in the pursuits of mutual esteem, trust, sincerity, faith, and responsibility, we invite you to join us.

The word for the deep sense of community you find here at St. Norbert is communio. It is lived through open dialogue, consultation, and collaboration. Communio encourages us to respond individually and collectively to the needs of our local and global communities.

At St. Norbert College, you will hear the word communio quite often, but it is our greater hope that you will experience it every day.
