Fall 2020 Housing Update: Incoming Students

July 1, 2020

I know you are eagerly awaiting your fall 2020 housing assignment, and I appreciate your patience. Despite all of the uncertainties around COVID-19, we hope to share final housing assignments no later than Wednesday, July 13

In order to protect the health and safety of all members of our campus community we are implementing a number of safeguards that will impact how many students live on campus. This includes:

We have worked closely with public health experts, including University research faculty and the local St. Louis Health Department, to arrive at our housing plan for the fall.

We recognize the pandemic may lead you to shift your plans to be on campus this fall and instead choose to take classes online. If you need to request an exemption from the residency requirement, please email; you will need to provide information about your reasons for exemption.

We appreciate you. We are excited for you to begin your journey as a Billiken. We’re grateful for your patience as we navigate this very fluid and challenging situation.
