Washington Theological Union (WTU) was a Roman Catholic graduate school of theology and ministry in Washington, D.C. in the United States, with a mission of educating and forming candidates for the priesthood and other church ministries.[2] The school was founded in 1968 and conducted its last graduation in May 2013 after 45 years of operation.[3] WTU was accredited by the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (ATS), and was a member of the Washington Theological Consortium.[4]

The school announced on June 27, 2011 that it did "not have the financial resources to be able to continue offering its academic services to the Church and the community beyond the 2012 - 2013 academic year" and it would stop admitting new students after September 2011.[5]
