A Complete College Experience

Residence Hall life allows STLCOP students to relax, study, and socialize without commuting to and from campus. Everything you need to live and learn is right here.

Residence Hall

Currently, all freshman students are required to live on campus unless they receive a waiver. Freshman students generally stay in shared rooms, although a limited number of room assignments to suites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Limited suite assignments also are available for sophomore students who wish to live in Residence Hall.

Please note: Housing assignments will be made after all New Student Orientation sessions are complete.

  • Each room includes basic cable, Internet connections and Wi-Fi.
  • Because regular corded phones will not work in Residence Hall student rooms, you can check out a data-line phone with voicemail from STLCOP’s IT department.
  • Each floor also has a study lounge, kitchenette, vending machines, copier, and printer available for student use.
  • On the main floor, students gather in a large common area complete with a big-screen TV, DVD player, and fireplace.
  • Coin-operated laundry facilities, an ice machine, conference room, and mailroom are also available.
  • Our 24-hour front desk is staffed by resident assistants who can help students with maintenance requests, hold packages that arrive in the mail, check out games and vacuums, and answer other general questions.

Roommate Selection Process

Students living in Residence Hall may request a roommate they already know or choose to be matched with a roommate based on a compatibility profile that each student fills out and makes accessible to other students to view and compare. To help make sure you are paired with your most desired roommate, please follow the steps below.

  • Submit your profile online.
  • Scan profiles for possible roommates. You will receive the required password during Orientation.
  • Email anyone with whom you might want to live.
  • If you find a match, both you and your chosen roommate must fill out the Roommate Request Form to officially submit the request. Only mutual requests can be honored, so you BOTH must fill out the form.
  • Letters confirming your room and roommate will be sent to your permanent home address in late July/early August.

For more information about the roommate selection process, please contact Anne Brackett, director of residential life, at 314.446.8354.
