Minutes from downtown St. Louis, Missouri, The Webster University home campus is nestled in Webster Groves, a charming and historic residential suburb. 


It is a well-known fact that new college students who live on campus have higher GPAs, become more involved in campus activities, and are more likely to earn a diploma than those who live off-campus.

To maximize this advantage, Webster University built two new residence halls at the main campus in the historic St. Louis suburb of Webster Groves. These halls, East and West Hall, opened in Fall 2006. Additionally, Maria Hall underwent a $4 million renovation in 2008, and brand new furniture was installed in 2008 in the Webster Village Apartments complex.
