About us

Heythrop was established in 1614 in Louvain by the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) for the study of philosophy and theology. Since 1970, it has been a College of the University of London, while retaining a modern Catholic ethos, and offers an educational experience that respects all faiths and perspectives.

The College is to close shortly after the end of the 2017/18 academic year.  Our focus now is to ensure that Heythrop’s high teaching standards are maintained and that students are given the best possible experience during their time with the College. We will also continue to connect with the wider community and to engage in high quality research, publication and work in the public square, during the course of next academic year.
