If you are making your own way to campus, you will find the information below helpful for arriving at the University. Please note that if you did not schedule a pickup with our office, you will need to make your own arrangements for transportation from the airport to the campus.

Local apartments are usually managed by leasing offices or landlords that only operate during standard business hours (Mondays through Fridays 9:00am-5:00pm). Weekend hours can vary depending on the property. Students who are planning to live off campus should discuss arrival and check-in arrangements with a leasing representative from the property where they will be living before travelling to St. Louis. Beware of signing lease agreements for off-campus properties that you have not yet seen. Lease agreements can be very difficult to get out of once they have been signed. Breaking a lease agreement usually involves paying a significant fee, sometimes up to half of the total lease amount (lease amount = total rent for the term of the lease). If possible, wait to sign the lease agreement until you have arrived in St. Louis and have viewed the property where you will live.
