Housing and Residence Life

Saint Louis University Residence Halls, Meal Plans and More

When you live on campus, you have easy access to the library, student center, study groups and career services. Learning communities connect you with students with similar interests or academic goals, planned community service activities help you get involved, and you’ll find leadership opportunities in your building and all over campus. Plus, because college is a transition, you’ll have access to a professional staff, including campus ministry and student health and counseling.

So revel in the view from the top floor of Griesedieck Hall. Head down to Fusz with roommates for a late night snack. Hang your hammock on the quad. Stay awhile.


 Fall Semester Guest Policy

For on-campus residents, there are guest restrictions in effect until further notice.

Guests and Gatherings

If you live on campus, you may have guests from within your residence hall/apartment building or guests from other on-campus housing with the permission of your roommate. Gatherings in residence hall rooms or apartments should not exceed more than double the designed occupancy level inclusive of the residents for that particular space (i.e., a two-person room may not have more than four people in it any given time).

Visitation Hours

Visitation is permitted during the following days and times for all residential areas:

Sunday 7:00am - Monday 2:00am
Monday 7:00am - Tuesday 2:00am
Tuesday 7:00am - Wednesday 2:00am
Wednesday 7:00am - Thursday 2:00am
Thursday 7:00am - Friday 2:00am
Friday 7:00am - Saturday 4:00am
Saturday 7:00am - Sunday 4:00am

Off-Campus and Overnight Guests

Residents cannot have off-campus guests, whether they are SLU community members or not. Outside of move-in and move out, parents and families will not be permitted to enter into the residential buildings.

The privilege of overnight guests is suspended for the Fall 2020 semester and will remain in effect until further notice. This includes other students living in your residence hall/apartment building or other campus housing locations. All residential policies may be found in section 4.2 of the Student Handbook.

Examples for Clarification

The following examples help to clarify current guest restrictions in on-campus residences. 

Example A:  You share a space with one roommate.  You and your roommate agree each can have guests in the space. Your roommate is not present, and you have three guests in the space. This is compliant, as long as everyone in the room wears their masks for the entire visit. 

Example B:  Both you and your roommate are present, and each has one guest in the space. This is compliant, as long as everyone in the room wears their masks for the entire visit.

Example C:  You are in a 4-person suite where the suite has two separate bedrooms with two people sharing each space and a common foyer/bathroom area.  Each bedroom can have four people (Two occupants plus one guest each), but you cannot have eight people in one bedroom. Any time there are guests, everyone in the room should wear their masks for the entire visit.

Residence Hall Life  

Campus housing at SLU is more than just a place to rest your head. It provides community. Living, learning and growing on campus adds an incredible dimension to your education that’s hard to match.  National research shows students who live on campus perform better academically, graduate earlier than their off-campus counterparts, get more involved and have stronger connections to their peers. Get SLU's latest room and board rates, learn about room assignments and find out what accommodations are available to make SLU housing accessible to you. 

Enjoy the move-in day moment between when our Oriflamme leaders deliver the last box of belongings to your room and you start setting out your photos of family and friends. Relax, breathe deeply and take a look around. This is home.

Learning Communities

At SLU, we know that you're more likely to succeed when your education extends beyond the walls of a classroom. Our learning communities allow you to live in the same residence hall with other students who are your academic program or who share your interests. You'll take courses together and participate in events, activities and service experiences, allowing you to form friendships that last the duration of your time here and beyond.
