Off-Campus Housing

All UMSL students may live off-campus if they choose. Off-campus housing may be less or more expensive than on-campus housing, depending on the area. It is often further from campus, which can be difficult for students without cars. Off-campus housing also has additional costs, such as utilities. If you choose to live off-campus, be sure to visit the apartment before signing a lease.
