Why Xavier's

St. Xavier's College is a 155 years old institution with rich heritage and long tradition.

As a Jesuit Higher Educational Institution, it aims to form men and women for others, with fundamental human and spiritual values.

The tiny seed has grown into a mighty tree from 83 students in 1860 to 7,833 students in January 2015.

The College functions in three shifts : morning, day and evening, offering UG and PG courses in Humanities, Science, Education, Commerce and Business Administration.

The College also offers various career oriented certificate and diploma courses to college students as well as others.

The College motto "Nihil Ultra" means Nothing Beyond, a motto, significant and suggestive of a noble ideal, of an unconquerable hope, that should urge the Xavierian always to aim high.

The spirit of Xavier's is Majis greater service to greater number of people for the greater glory of God (AMDG)..

St. Francis Xavier
Patron of the College


Dear Xaverians,
St. Xavier's, as you know it well, is a Jesuit institution with one history but many stories, one fire with many sparks; it forms men and women for others, men and women who display competence, commitment, conscience and compassion.
