3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Kinda pricey and visitation hours were a bit of a bummer.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: SUPER expensive on-campus housing but LOVED my freshman dorm. The rooms are pretty small but if you're a storage master like me you can make it work. Good luck getting a spot in the apartments sophomore year - the housing selection process is a pain!

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I feel so bad for people who don't live on campus, it's part of the college experience. The dorms are averagely small but the community around them is great especially freshman year (gries). There are also a good number of other options for when you become a sophomore (marchetti) and the loft apartments for upperclassman are the best!

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Most students only live on campus for the first two years before moving to one of the apartment buildings bordering campus.

Gries is the best freshman dorm and the best located housing on campus.

Definitely live in DeMatt your sophomore year if you are Greek - it is a lot of fun.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus

Freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus, and they have a variety of housing options to choose from. The two most popular freshman residence halls are Griesedieck and Reinert. Students tend to choose between the two based on bathroom preference, as Griesedieck has communal bathrooms and Reinert has private bathrooms. Freshmen are also allowed to live in the other dorm-style residence halls on campus. SLU also offers learning communities for first-year students, where they live with students with similar majors and interests. Upperclassmen have the option to live in dorms or in on-campus apartments. Most juniors and seniors chose to live off campus because sophomores get priority since they are required to live on campus. Housing and Residence Life currently uses a lottery system to place students, so all freshmen and sophomores will get a spot on campus—it just may not be their first choice.

Many of the on-campus buildings are older, but the University does a great job of updating and renovating them. Each on-campus building has a different environment and has a perk for being closer to one thing than another. Each dorm also has a strong community, and freshmen tend to become close with friends who live on their floor. No matter where you live at SLU you'll have a great social experience, as residence advisers put on social and recreational programming for residents. Whether the floor meets up before heading to a sporting event or goes out to dinner, students will experience the welcoming SLU community their first week on campus.
