Take the First Step Towards Your Dream Career

The University traces its roots to the Universidad de Santo Tomás de Villanueva, founded in 1946 in Havana, Cuba, by American Augustinians with assistance from European Augustinians. When the Castro government expelled the Augustinians from Cuba in 1961, several of the American Augustinians came to Miami, where they founded Biscayne College in 1961. 

The University came under the sponsorship of the Archdiocese of Miami in 1988, conferring upon St. Thomas the distinction of being the only Catholic Archdiocesan sponsored university in the State of Florida. When University status was attained, the name of the institution was changed to St. Thomas University to reflect its Cuban heritage.
