Up for an Urban Campus?
Check out college life, city style.
From college towns to big city campuses, each university has a setting all its own. At Saint Louis University, an urban setting is balanced with plenty of green space. From a more rural setting? Don't be nervous about life in the city. You'll find a piece of campus to call your own, just like getting to know a new neighborhood.
SLU in St. Louis
St. Louis brings a balance of city life with Midwest appeal. There's plenty to do off campus, but not so much that students feel easily distracted or overwhelmed.
Steps from SLU in Midtown is St. Louis's Grand Center, a hub for performing arts. Nearby Forest Park offers museums - art and history - plus the Saint Louis Science Center and the city's world class zoo.
The best thing for a college student on a budget? Everything in the park is free!
Life, On and Off Campus
Hungry for a little more action? Check out St. Louis's Central West End, known for its character, restaurants and social scene.
South of SLU's campus on Grand Avenue, students explore ethnic restaurants, from sushi to Ethiopian, while downtown boasts Washington Avenue's restaurants nightlife.
It's all really exciting, but at SLU you still get the full on-campus experience. The campus is enclosed within the city, so you have the college atmosphere when you want it but can escape for a while or explore the city when adventure calls.
