About Saint Louis University

Saint Louis University is a Catholic, Jesuit institution with campuses in St. Louis, Mo. and Madrid, Spain. SLU values academic excellence, life-changing research, compassionate health care, and a strong commitment to faith and service. For nearly 200 years, the University has gone beyond teaching facts and figures, encouraging students to form ideas and identities. Today, SLU students are nearly 13,000 strong, seeking to mold their lives into something stronger.

The University has invested vast resources to advance academic programs and enhance the student experience. SLU also is a major research institution where premier researchers tackle local and global challenges. And the University's commitment to community service has earned it national acclaim and bolstered its status as a character-building college.

In SLU's classrooms, ethics, spirituality and compassion are fundamental, no matter what the subject. More than 80 of SLU's courses integrate service into academics. And this spirit pervades campus; SLU students, faculty and staff provide more than a million service hours each year.

In addition, Saint Louis University is a major catalyst for urban renewal in the heart of a remarkable city. The University has funded more than $850 million in campus improvements and expansions during the past 25 years. And its annual economic impact on the region exceeds $715 million.

The Mission of Saint Louis University is the pursuit of truth for the greater glory of God and for the service of humanity. The University seeks excellence in the fulfillment of its corporate purposes of teaching, research, health care and service to the community. It is dedicated to leadership in the continuing quest for understanding of God's creation and for the discovery, dissemination and integration of the values, knowledge and skills required to transform society in the spirit of the Gospels. As a Catholic, Jesuit university, this pursuit is motivated by the inspiration and values of the Judeo-Christian tradition and is guided by the spiritual and intellectual ideals of the Society of Jesus.

Campus information

SLU has more than 200 student clubs and organizations, everything from fraternities and sororities to special interest groups like the Hispanic American Leadership Organization, the Political Science Club or SLU-TV, a student-run television network. Or, start a new club yourself!

The rationale: Studying makes life plenty busy. But getting involved on campus is a great way to blow off steam, serve others and develop leadership skills employers love to see on resumes.

St. Louis, Missouri -- in the city's arts district, five minutes from the Gateway Arch on the Mississippi Riverfront. A second campus is located in Madrid, Spain. 


Saint Louis University, situated in mid-town St. Louis, offers an array of unique residential housing opportunities for student residents. The campus housing and residence life system offers 8 residence halls and 4 apartment complexes; and provides perhaps one of the most distinctive "out of classroom" educational experiences within the entire university.

Throughout the residence halls, students have the opportunity to become part of an academic learning community and/or first-year interest group. These opportunities allow students the chance to experience the cohesiveness and intimacy of a small cohort peer group, with similar academic, social, and service interest; while still remaining closely engaged to and enjoying the cultural and scholarly resources of a large university.

Living on campus does much to assist in fostering spirit, allegiance, and a sense of community at Saint Louis University; and the Department of Housing and Residence Life makes every effort to represent the diversity of the entire undergraduate community within every residential facility. In this sense each residential facility is a microcosm of the larger student population.

The residential housing system offers students a familiar, comfortable living environment, personal interaction with professional staff and administrators, and exciting opportunities for academic extracurricular exploration.
