In the middle of it all
Saint Louis University paves the way for the city's ongoing renovation. SLU has invested more than $850 million in the campus over the past 25 years. SLU is centrally located in the heart of the city. You'll be just steps from the Grand Center arts district of St. Louis, which is home to theaters, museums, restaurants and more. Watch a touring Broadway musical, listen to the world-class St. Louis Symphony Orchestra or enjoy a contemporary art exhibit.
Learning support when you need it
At SLU, your education isn't limited to the classroom. As a first-year student, you can expect innovative programs to help your successful transition into the university. New students are grouped into Learning Communities, which provide creative academic support.
You will be encouraged to challenge your thinking and develop strong answers. As a major research institution, we are dedicated to teaching you how to think logically, argue pointedly and express yourself clearly. SLU is also one of only eight Catholic universities with a high or very-high research distinction. Throughout our university and surrounding communities, we have a shared value of supporting the common good. SLU created these values to encourage staff and students to adopt the highest standards of conduct for both personal and professional practice.
