Freshman Commuter Student Information


The Student Involvement Center works with all incoming traditional freshmen commuter students, who have been exempt from the residency requirement, to help ensure a smooth transition to Saint Louis University. We provide a variety of programs and services to foster a sense of community both within the group of freshmen commuters and to the broader Saint Louis University campus community.

Welcome Class of 2020! We look forward to you joining the SLU community.
