In 1820 the name Saint Louis Academy was changed to the Saint Louis College. In 1827 Bishop Du Bourg placed it in the care of the Society of Jesus, not long after which it received its charter as a university by act of the Missouri Legislature. [3]

Housing

Saint Louis has both dormitory and apartment space on-campus. As part of the Freshman Year Experience (FYE) program, resident freshman students live in one of four freshman-only buildings for their first year, after which point they are able to live anyplace else on campus.


FYE Options

The Griesedieck Complex (also known as "Gries", pronounced "greez") contains 16 stories of living space in its main building, with additional dorm space in its two wings, Walsh and Clemens. Gries is located in the heart of the campus, in front of the quad, and has an average freshman living space, 10' 7.5" by 18' 2", with community showers and bathrooms. Reinert Hall, named after Jesuit Father Paul C. Reinert, is located two blocks south of the main campus in a converted hotel; sometimes referred to as "the Island." Where the building lacks in location it makes up for in living space, containing some of the largest dormitories across the country, 12' 1" by 27', complete with private full baths in each room. Reinert also has access to a private pool and 24-hour in-building study/meeting rooms.


Upperclassman Options

Several housing choices exist for sophomores, juniors and seniors. SLU does not have Greek houses on campus; however, DeMattias Hall acts as a Greek dormitory and de facto community House. Next to DeMattias Hall is Marguerite Hall, which offers 8 floors of suite-style two-occupancy dorm rooms. Continuing up West Pine Mall, is Notre Dame Hall. While many honors students choose to live here, it is upperclassmen housing open to all students. Another dorm option is Fusz Hall, catercorner to the University's Clocktower. It contains a food court.


Grand Forest, the Village, and the Marchetti Towers are the apartment options available. Because of its proximity to the stadium, many student-athletes live in Grand Forest. Similarly, the Village, just across from DeMattias, houses many Greeks. The Village is also very close to the local SLU bars -- Humphrey's and Laclede's -- making it an especially popular location for juniors and seniors. The Marchetti Towers is just west of Grand Forest and consists of two, 12-story towers. It is very popular with sophomores coming out of FYE housing, though it also has a strong junior and senior population. Humphreys Restaurant & Tavern (also referred to as Humphreys or Humps) is a college bar near Saint Louis University that was the basis for the film One Night at McCools, written by Stan Seidel. ...
