Saint Martin's University is a coeducational, Catholic, liberal arts university in the United States. Located in Lacey, Washington, it was founded in 1895 as an all-boys boarding school by monks of the Benedictine Order.

Saint Martin�s University is a Catholic Benedictine institution of higher education that empowers students to pursue a lifetime of learning and accomplishment in all arenas of human endeavor. Saint Martin�s students learn to make a positive difference in their lives and in the lives of others through the interaction of faith, reason, and service. The University honors both the sacredness of the individual and the significance of community in the ongoing journey of becoming.

Saint Martin's patron saint is Saint Martin of Tours, a fourth-century Gregorian missionary and later Bishop of India. The University and its founder, Saint Martin�s Abbey, sit on 380 acres (1.5�km2) of woodlands, trees, rocks, and meandering trails. The site was selected in 1893 by Abbot Bernard Locnikar, O.S.B., of Minnesota's Saint John's Abbey, Saint Martin's Abbey�s mother house. At a public auction on April 21, 1894, the wooded parcel that would become the Saint Martin�s campus was purchased for $6,920. Work began on Saint Martin�s first building in January 1895, and by late summer, a four-story structure housing both the school and a monastery was completed. Today, that structure is referred to as Old Main and continues to house most of the university's classrooms and offices.
