3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's a dorm, so it's cramped. There are apartments, mostly upperclassmen get them. You're super close to all of the buildings so thats a plus. The dorms are very strict with visitors. Nice lounge area in each wing of each floor. Very social on and off campus areas. Living on campus is expensive, but it is pretty much everywhere you go to college. They use a lottery system sometimes and other times they use the number of credits you have to give out each persons/group's first choices.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I live at home. Cheaper and better than living in the dorms or apartments on campus. Mostly everyone goes home during the weekends so it seems a bit pointless when it comes to social stuff.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its nice if you enjoy always being around people and are social, however, for introverts it can become annoying and disruptive.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live in campus housing so I cannot make a fair assessment of its quality.

East and West halls are the newest and most popular dorms on campus—if you can't snag a place in the Village Apartments. There have been times when freshmen have occupied apartment housing, but it has been rare, as most get stuck with West or Maria halls as their only options. The two newer dorm buildings have the most aesthetic appeal and provide more amenities than Maria Hall. However, Maria Hall does have its advantages. It is located right above Marletto's dining area and just a few steps from Webster Hall, where most of the liberal arts courses are located. If you are a liberal arts major, most of your classes will be within Webster Hall, and scheduling time to get to class will not be much of a problem.

East and West halls are nearer to Sverdrup Complex and the music school, but it will still take some time to get to class in comparison to the closeness from Maria Hall to Webster Hall. The most highly demanded living area is the Webster Village Apartments, since they are the only housing options with an oven or stove and larger spaces. The apartments are more expensive than the dorms and are located right across from West and East halls, but they are a good option to consider for older, out-of-state students. Generally, housing is given on a first-come, first-served basis and fills up quite quickly. Out-of-state students will be given top priority for housing, while St. Louis residents are given whatever housing is left available.

Also Available
Some incoming freshmen are placed in residential houses depending on whether they are signed up with a learning community (LC) or not. The learning community members live on one floor in the same building to create new connections among the members and become familiar with them.
Available for Rent
In order to watch cable TV in the dorms, you will have to rent a cable set-top box set for $75 to hook up to your computer. There is also a loft kit that is available to rent out for $100 for the entire academic year. The kit allows the bed to raise up an extra 72 inches for extra storage underneath and is available for apartment or dorm room beds.
