COVID-19 Resources

The University of Missouri–St. Louis is taking proactive steps to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of UMSL students, faculty, staff, and the community.  It has been incredible to see the generosity and strength of the community in these uncertain times. Several organizations and businesses have stepped up to ensure the health, safety, and wellbeing of residents. One comprehensive resource is the STL Database which you can locate here. To provide support, the team has compiled a series of resource lists including General Resource Sites, Resident Resources, Business Resources, School District Links, and Online Activities.
