Visits and Events

There are some SLU experiences that photographs just can’t capture. Walk down West Pine Mall and see all the places to study and meet up with friends. Be wowed by the amazing architecture and stained glass inside College Church. Rub the Billiken’s belly for good luck.

We want you to feel welcome and experience the Saint Louis University we know, so we’ve created a number of ways to visit campus that make the most of your time, including weekday and Saturday visits, special events and open houses.

Where to Stay

In an effort to show our guests a more realistic view of residence halls at SLU, we use rooms that are occupied by current students. We want to ensure and respect our students' privacy and busy schedules; therefore, residence hall tours are limited during move-in or move-out days, or near holidays and school breaks.

Residence hall tours are also limited during the summer due to scheduled maintenance. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask a visit assistant. Dates and times are subject to change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances. We recommend that you check our schedule six to eight weeks before making travel arrangements.
