Saint Louis University Madrid


SLU's Madrid Campus dates from a modest study abroad program launched by Raymond L. Sullivant, S.J. in the 1960s. Its success led Father Sullivant to offer classes in conjunction with the University of Comillas and then to establish an independent, permanent program, with its administrative offices and classrooms located between Madrid's Complutense University and the city center in 1967.


Saint Louis University offers 15 undergraduate and two graduate degrees entirely on our Madrid campus and options to pursue nearly 100 more in connection with study in St. Louis, Missouri.


Career development is a journey. Wherever you are in the process — from choosing a major to considering graduate school — SLU-Madrid Career Services offers seminars and one-to-one coaching to help you develop your plans and achieve career success.

Our Career Services Coordinator is here to help you find internships, coach you on your job search, and assist with graduate school applications.
