The Newman Catholic Center is a 60,000 sq. ft. facility located on the UMass campus and is dedicated to serving the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Inspired by John Henry Cardinal Newman’s motto, “heart speaks to heart,” we reach out to all people of good will.

The Newman Center is an Apostolate of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield. We offer traditional Catholic worship, a wide
variety of service-related and social events, services to students as well as a top notch cafeteria.

The Newman Center is here for everyone, not just Catholics. So, when you are on campus, stop by and check us out.
