If you’re thinking about attending Saint Louis University, one of the first things we suggest is to visit campus. That’s because there is something special about seeing SLU in person.
Scattered among our state-of-the-art classroom buildings and historic halls are the places that make the 271-acres of SLU a community — the amphitheater at Lipic Clock Tower Plaza where students gather on warm days, the chairs clustered around a fire pit at Fusz Hall on cool nights and the touch-football games on Tegeler Field that break out spring or fall.
You’ll feel our spirit in the cheers coming from Chaifetz Arena and in the ritual of 9 p.m. Mass each Sunday. Run your hands down the same oak bannisters brought to a gloss by generations of students before you and rub the bronze belly of the Billiken statue for good luck.
Someplace between posing for a picture in front of the campus gateways, testing out a hammock on the quad or hearing the St. Francis Xavier College Church bells toll, you realize you’re finally home.
Located in the middle of the city that shares its name, SLU is walking distance from both St. Louis’ performing arts center and from the Cortex Innovation District, which is a key reason St. Louis is the number one start-up city in America. An easy drive from more than 300 cities, see campus in a day, or spend an entire weekend getting to know SLU and the city of St. Louis.
