Griesedieck Complex

Located steps from the quad, the Griesedieck Complex is the tallest building on Saint Louis University’s campus.

Primarily housing male and female freshman and sophomore students, the "U"-shaped complex is made up of Clemens, Walsh and Griesedieck halls. Residents of the Griesedieck Complex share a common lobby area with a smart classroom and student lounge. The complex is also home to a chapel.

Students who live in “Gries” are next door to Simon Recreation Center and across the mall from Pius XII Memorial Library — plus, Griesedieck Hall has an incredible view of the St. Louis Arch.
