Campus Life

Check back for more information as we prepare for fall 2021.

Access to campus buildings is restricted during the summer break.
Campus buildings are "swipe access" only for only students, faculty and staff who have been approved to remain on campus.

Note: The information on this page pertains to the 2020-21 academic year.


For the 2020-21 academic year, in conjunction with plans from the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), the Aquinas athletic department is postponing all fall 2020 sports competition until the spring 2021 semester. This difficult decision was made with the health and safety of AQ student-athletes, the campus community and broader community in mind.

Information about the plans for sports practices and workouts, support for our student-athletes as they prepare for competition and information about athletic department operations is available on the AQSaints.com.

AQ Bookstore

For the 2020-21 academic year, textbooks must be purchased online. Online orders can be delivered to your home, or you can ship online orders to the campus store for FREE by selecting “Store Pickup.”

On-Campus Housing

Things will feel different in the 2020-21 academic year, but Aquinas College is committed to building a strong community on campus and online to provide our faculty, staff and students with valuable experiences and relationships.

For the 2020-21 academic year, non-AQ student guests are not permitted in on-campus housing (except when assisting a residential student during Fall 2020 Move-In).
