Campus Y History and Mission
The Washington University in St. Louis Campus YMCA was chartered on campus in 1911, but was interrupted by World War I and was reorganized in 1924.
The Campus Y has been an active student organization on campus ever since, offering a wide variety of programs to meet the needs of the students, Washington University and the greater St. Louis community.
Today, the Campus Y at Washington University in St. Louis has 24 programs and we are always interested in students' ideas for more!
The Campus Y is a student-centered organization dedicated to developing ethical leaders of exemplary character by applying the principles of the YMCA of Greater St. Louis in partnership with Washington University in St. Louis.
Caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility are the basics for all that we do.
We believe the Washington University in St. Louis Campus Y will become known as a pre-eminent student-centered organization and will grow in stature and respect in the Washington University community. Our efforts will continue to reflect the principles of ethical and responsible leadership in everything we do.
Please note: We are not a fitness facility. Our role on campus is to house student-run community service programs. If you are looking for a place to participate in traditional YMCA activities, please visit the Web page for the YMCA of Greater St. Louis.
