Welcome to Washington University in St. Louis' Office of Residential Life!

Our program consists of the South 40 and the North Side, where over 4000 students call Residential Life home during the school year.

Nicknamed "the 40" because it is forty acres located directly south of the Danforth Campus, this space is home to about 3200 residents in twenty-four residence halls, as well as recreational space, computer clusters, campus eateries, and much, much more. “The 40” is a place to study, sleep, eat, relax, and form new friendships.

Many of our upperclass students live on the North Side, which is located at the northwest corner of the Danforth Campus. The North Side consists of the Village and our on- and off-campus apartments, each of which provides a variety of programs and amenities for students to enjoy.

Residential Life's principles  Live. Learn. Lead . guide our work and our initiatives.

Find out more about our mission and goals.

 Thank you for visiting with us, and we hope to see you again soon!
