Physics and Engineering Department

About the Department

Xavier physics majors, faculty, and staff bring diverse backgrounds and experiences to form a cohesive, open, and supportive community dedicated to academic rigor and excellence, and committed fully to the undergraduate experience.

The focal point of this community is the Lindner Family Physics Building, which houses faculty offices, classrooms, research and teaching laboratories and an observatory. A centrally located student lounge equipped with several computers, a microwave and refrigerator, and a large table and couches provides students with a place to study, engage in lively academic debate, socialize or just relax.
