Located in one of Mobile, Alabama’s most charming and picturesque neighborhoods, the Spring Hill College campus comprises 381 acres dotted with towering oak trees and azalea-lined walkways. Several buildings on campus are listed in the National Register of Historic Places and the property is shared by an 18-hole golf course.
At the heart of the campus stands a triumvirate of buildings that serve as a pillar of the Spring Hill community: St. Joseph’s Chapel, the Barter Student Center, and Burke Memorial Library. Some of the campus’ most scenic features are visible from this centrally located hub of student and faculty resources.
The surrounding area of Mobile, which is located on the Alabama Gulf Coast, is situated at the mouth of the Mobile River and the edge of Mobile Bay. The Mobile Bay area encompasses approximately 2,800 square miles and is home to more than 540,000 residents. Combining Southern beauty and charm with the advantages of a fast-growing metropolitan area, the region offers a multitude of cultural and recreational opportunities for all ages.
