Location & Facilities

St. Francis Xavier University is a primarily undergraduate university located in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada.


Part of the definition of Antigonish is “meeting place”—and it’s no accident. Since the Mi’kmaqs occupied its shores 2,500 years ago, Antigonish has opened its arms to people from all over the world. In the 1750s, the Acadian French began to settle here. A few decades later, thousands of Scots escaping oppression abroad found the area a welcome new home. Soon after, free black citizens fleeing the American Revolution and Irish Loyalists adopted the region as well.
