Mission and Identity

Cintas Center

The largest building on campus, the Cintas Center was constructed through private donations as part of Xavier's Century Campaign. It is the University's primary athletics facility with a 10,250 seat multi-purpose arena and a conference center. Students begin and end their academic experience in the Center as it is the setting for the Presidential Welcome and Community Celebration which starts freshman orientation and for the Baccalaureate Mass and Commencement four years later.
