Housing Assignments

Housing assignments will be available through MyHousing. Once housing assignments are made in our system, student accounts are automatically billed for the full room and board charge. Financial Aid then makes a disbursement up to 10 days prior to the start of class.

Temporary Housing

Temporary housing may be available for international students and exchange students who are arriving to St. Louis earlier than the move in date. Residential Life and Housing cannot guarantee your room will be available. All students arriving early must fill out a temporary housing request form. All students arriving early will pay a $25/night temporary housing fee for the extra days. If you are arriving early you must arrange your own transportation from the airport to campus.
