Deusto CampusFaith


The University of Deusto, an institution of the Society of Jesus, assumes the mission of serving society through a specifically university-based contribution and from a Christian vision of reality.

We believe that faith is an important dimension in the development of the person. For this reason, we promote activities to live, share and grow in the experience of faith. From the Jesuit tradition and Ignatian spirituality, framed in the Catholic Christian faith, several possibilities are offered.

In this sense, the Faith and Spirituality area offers you accompaniment, training and experiences that will help you to get to know the Christian faith better, to deepen the spiritual dimension of your life and from there to discover how to contribute to a more just and sustainable world.

The spiritual accompaniment allowed me to enter into my inner self and to visualise issues to strengthen my life project.

Garate International

Every year, the University of Deusto's community welcomes a significant number of international students with whom we share a space of encounter between different cultures, traditions and religions. We do so inspired by the figure of Blessed Francisco Garate (1888 - 1929), who was the person in charge of welcoming students to the university for forty years.

Your vocation starts today

Vocational culture

The story runs a certain parallelism between the conversion experience that Ignatius of Loyola lived 500 years ago and the wound that Nacho is living today in 2022. UNIJES has commissioned this inspirational video as part of the Project for the development of a Vocational Culture in its centres and on the occasion of the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the conversion of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. Remember, your vocation begins today, day by day, it begins in your story and with others.
