As COVID-19, the novel coronavirus, continues to impact the nation and the world, Saint Louis University is taking appropriate steps to prioritize the health and safety of our campus. Services and events may be adapted or interrupted during this time.
We ask for your continued patience as leaders and medical professionals work through this complicated, evolving issue. Please see the list below for the latest information about changes to the hours or status of instruction, services and events at the University.
Outside of the announced changes to academic instruction and residence halls, SLU's St. Louis campus is open. To the extent possible, we aim to continue with normal operations, although we recognize that usual business may need to be conducted by phone/virtual meetings. We encourage students to keep scheduled academic appointments by phone/video meetings if they are able to do so.
