Temporary and Guest Housing

From the Division of Continuing Education:

"I'd like to thank you and your assistant for helping make Gregory feel welcome and comfortable in Oak Hall. Gregory was on campus for a two day noncredit workshop. He came in from Ohio and he needed inexpensive accommodations because he was paying the registration fee and travel expenses out of his own pocket. He had missed the email sent to him with instructions on how to reserve his room so when he arrived the arrangements had not been finalized. He said that your assistant took great care of him when he arrived. He couldn't say enough good things about her and the accommodations. This is the kind of service that gives UMSL a great reputation. Thanks for your help." ~Gina, June 17, 2009

From Conference Participants:

"First of all, I would like to say that your assistant is a gem! Please give that girl a raise! She was very accommodating and quick with any problems that arose that I had witnessed and worked very hard on Saturday . . . . She was also very nice and genuinely interested in our hobby to play along with us. You have a wonderful person on your staff and you should keep her for as long as you can!" ~Tina, July 2009

"The campus and rooms were very clean, it seemed very safe and having the Metro right there was so convenient. All in all, I was impressed with the UMSL campus and dorms. It was lovely!" ~Amanda, July 2009

"I found everything to be really wonderful in the dorms. I have been at other conferences on college campuses and I have to say these were the cleanest nicest dorms I have every stayed in." ~Jennifer, July 2009

"I wanted to contact you to tell you what a fantastic time my sister and I had as guests at UMSL! It is a beautiful campus and the staff we encountered were ALWAYS most welcoming and helpful. They did a wonderful job of checking us in... I would not hesitate to stay at the dorms again. So convenient with metro stops and so much beautiful ground to explore - it was a very, very enjoyable experience. I have fallen in love with what I saw of St. Louis and would love to return to explore it further on my own. The dorms at UMSL would certainly make impromptu trips more affordable." ~Gail, July 2009

"I found the whole experience at UMSL to be fabulous. it was a wonderful setup for a "conference" like ours. The suite arrangement is one I was unfamiliar with, but it worked out great. having the families and singles on separate floors was very smart! The common areas meant there were often people to mingle with, when I found myself at a loss at the end of the day. The fun's over, now what? Oooh, I know - go see who else is lingering! Overall, this was a huge success. The accommodations worked out great, and the registration process was very easy." ~Anderson, July 2009

Provincial House Chapel Weddings

From St. Louis Bride Magazine:

"When Melissa's mother saw the [Provincial House] Chapel's stained glass windows, she burst into (happy) tears and Melissa then knew for sure it was the right place. With beautiful gardens, the magnificence of flying buttresses "reminiscent of Notre Dame" and beautiful hardwood and marble, the Chapel would seat 350 guests... A Chapel staff who powered the 'fun.' Melissa loved working with them." ~Fall 2006, pg. 56
