Many of our upperclass students live on the North Side, which consists of residential communities on the Northwest corner of the Danforth Campus and in our neighborhoods near campus. Each of which provides a variety of programs and amenities for students to enjoy.
Nicknamed “The Forty” 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 Forty” is a place to study, sleep, eat, relax, and form new friendships.
