Student Financial Services has everything you need to learn about your scholarship and financial aid, and can help you develop financial well-being through every step of college and beyond.
SLU is full of academic resources that can help you succeed. You can make an appointment for academic coaching, tutoring and writing services through SLU Appointments.

Current students can sign up for housing as early as November. You can complete the process through mySLU or in person at SLU's housing office in DuBourg Hall. The Department of Housing and Residence Life can walk you through the process and has all the details about on-campus housing options.
You can buy your new, used and digital books online or in person at SLU's Barnes & Noble Bookstore and the Saint Louis University Law School Bookstore. Get your SLU spirit at any of those locations, as well as through Billiken Athletics.
