International Student Life & Student Union


International Student Life
The Gonzaga University Campus offers fun and variety for every type of personality! For some, campus life is centered around the Martin Center Gym where students can cheer for their favorite Zags sports teams, side by side with other students and faculty. For others, campus life is focused in the Foley Center library, business school or law school, all of which are perched above the peaceful Spokane River providing students with a beautiful view while studying. Many students and faculty find the regal red carpet and stained glass windows of the Administration building to be the best symbols of life at Gonzaga. The Jundt art center is another popular destination for those interested in exploring art exhibits. The famous St Aloysius cathedral has a special place in the hearts of many students as do the groves of trees in the center of campus and around Lake Arthur.

Life Off Campus

Off campus, many students enjoy the world-class skiing, hiking and outdoor sports within a short drive of the school.
Many members of the Gonzaga community take advantage of being able to walk to downtown department stores, restaurants and movies along the pedestrian river trail.
