Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College’s location allows you to live and study in a quiet, peaceful and secluded environment. Our wooded and spacious campus is perfect for calm walks through the rich oak trees, study sessions in the fresh air, a game of volleyball or a bike ride after class. At the same time, living at SMWC means you will be close to several metropolitan areas only a short car ride away.

The campus is located in Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana, five miles southeast of Terre Haute. The city gives you access to an endless variety of places to shop, eat, and hang out. You can choose from your favorite chain restaurant, or try one of the local eateries. Honey Creek Mall and the unique shops along Wabash Avenue make great places to spend a day shopping or keep entertained with the numerous cinemas or museums in town. Getting to-and-fro is easy especially with the availability of taxi, Uber and Lyft servicing the area. Terre Haute is also where you or your family members and friends can find hotel options.

Several major metropolitan areas — Indianapolis, St. Louis, Chicago, Louisville — are just within a few hours drive from SMWC. This ideal location allows you access to experiences from large cities before coming home to the solitude of campus.
