Students who live in on-campus housing — including those who remained on campus — are required to be tested for COVID-19  after winter break. Testing will take place between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. every day from Friday, Jan. 22 until Jan. 27 in Simon Recreation Center.

Life at SLU in the COVID Era

While new public health practices will be required of each of us on campus, we understand much of a student or employee’s life happens elsewhere.

While our on-campus environment now includes social distancing and health safeguards, we are consistently exploring ways to foster social dynamism while promoting safe, responsible action. While thinking creatively, we can participate in social activities while honoring OneSLU and protecting the greater St. Louis community.
