Living in Oak Hall allows you to live with people who are experiencing the new things you are. With the proximity to north campus it is convenient to attend classes and all the fun events. But being on south campus it makes it a smaller community and allows you to make more personal connections to other students.
Brianne Butler, Residential Advisor
I enjoy living on campus because you meet so many people ad there is always something to do. I also enjoy living at Oak Hall because it is conveniently located next to Seton Hall where all my classes are.

The experience you get from meeting new people. Whether it be your residents or just random people you meet around the Residential Hall, you get to make friends and connections with people you wouldn't get to otherwise.

Why they love living on campus?: I love living on campus because it helps students to build firm bonds with other students. As these bonds develop, it begins to feel like all the UMSL residents are one large family. Coming to a University where I knew no one, living on campus was a perfect way to make friends and get connected within a matter of days.
