Xavier University – Ateneo de Cagayan is a private, Roman Catholic university run by the Society of Jesus in Cagayan de Oro, Philippines.

It was founded on June 7, 1933 as the Ateneo de Cagayan by an American Jesuit missionary, Fr. James T.G. Hayes, S.J., D.D., who later became the first Archbishop of Cagayan de Oro. In 1958, Ateneo de Cagayan became a university and was renamed to its present name, Xavier University, in honor of the Jesuit missionary, St. Francis Xavier.

There were at least two attempts by the alumni of the then Ateneo de Cagayan to revert the name of the University to Ateneo de Cagayan. The first attempt was in the mid 1990's and the second attempt was in 2007. These attempts were, however, not widely supported and in the case of the 2007 proposal, not endorsed by the Xavier University – Ateneo Alumni Association (XU–AAA). Until today, the debate still continues.[1]

The official student publication of Xavier University is The Crusader. Its supreme student government is the Xavier University - Central Student Government.
