Does Saint Louis University provide lunch?

DineSLU has limited options for groups who wish to eat lunch on campus. Our facilities are designed to accommodate our current students, making it challenging to accommodate large groups during the school year. You may contact DineSLU at caterSLU.usa@sodexo.com.

Will we view a residence hall?

Our residence halls are occupied by students. To respect for their privacy, we cannot bring groups of students into the space.

How many chaperones do we need to bring with our group?

Chaperones will be required to accompany groups at all times during the visit. Our required ratio is as follows:

  • High School: One adult for every 15 students
  • Elementary and Middle School: One adult for every 10 students

What if we are running behind schedule on our way to Saint Louis University?

Arriving on time is important. Please realize that tour guides’ schedules are limited due to their class schedules. In the event of a late arrival, we will offer an abbreviated presentation, but we will be unable to alter the tour time. Our tour guides are student volunteers with limited availability surrounding their class schedules. Please contact the Office of Admission as soon as possible to inform us of your late arrival, 314-977-2500.

What if we need to cancel our visit?

If you find it necessary to cancel your visit, it is essential that you give at least three days notice. Failure to do so may limit future schedule availability for your group.
