All guests, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear masks while inside Saint Louis University buildings. Guests who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 must wear a mask and maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet at all times while on campus.  View the latest SLU guidance for COVID-19 precautions.

You can also view floor plans for all residential living options. To view the particular layout for each residence hall, you will need to select that specific hall’s page.
