Housing and Dining
The possibilities are limitless and convenient. Among the 20 largest metropolitan areas in the United States, St. Louis ranks second in the most-affordable housing market. Our city has gracious neighborhoods and safe housing options.
Washington University owns and operates several apartment complexes specifically for graduate students. Most graduate students live in one of the many privately-owned apartments located within a 10-block radius of the school. Both furnished and unfurnished rooms, apartments and houses are available. We recommend you consult with Apartment Referral Service (ARS), a resource for University students, faculty and staff looking for apartments, duplexes, condos or houses. See Olin's Guide to the Washington University Community for resources and tips for getting settled in St. Louis. Several months in advance of the new academic year, you should contact:
