Campus Housing

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not everyone can get houses which isn't cool.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty nice; my dorm just got a kitchen, so it is improving. The residential assistants are wonderful and kind and take their time to help out with problems. Work orders are always completed quickly. My only issues are the walls, because they are very thin and people like to play music way too loud. Cost wise, it isn't worth it. I personally, can't really afford it, and they force you to live on campus for two whole years. There also aren't enough living spaces for the amount of people they let in.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Our dorms and apartments are pretty homey. The dorms are a bit small, but not beyond accommodation. My biggest qualm is the lack of kitchen and iffy choice of food–I'm a foodie and health nut, and when the dining halls aren't serving anything good, turning to ramen kills me a little inside. Besides that, housing isn't readily available for everyone. We need new buildings. The school is fighting the city for expansion rights, and they're trying to come up with creative alternatives, but housing still remains somewhat inaccessible and VERY expensive.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.

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.

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.
