Paying Your Housing Deposit

The housing deposit is $175 ($25 non-refundable application fee, $150 deposit), which can be paid via credit card. Students will not receive a housing assignment without a housing deposit on file, so make sure to pay it by the April 1 priority deadline, or along with your application if apply after April 1.

Residency Requirement

Living on campus gives added value to the college experience. National research shows that students who live on campus do better academically, are more engaged and have a smoother transition. Because of that, Webster has a two-year residency requirement. Even if a student is not required to live on campus, we encourage them to do so — and many do!

All freshmen enrolled at the St. Louis main campus are required to live on campus for their first two years at the University. Exceptions to this requirement are granted for freshmen living with their parents within a 35-mile radius of the main campus in Webster Groves.

Undergraduate international transfer students are required to live on campus for their first year enrolled in classes at the main campus.

Additionally, all Study Abroad students (undergraduate and graduate) who study abroad at any of the St. Louis Metro campuses are required to reside in on-campus housing for the duration of their Study Abroad experience. All site transfer students are required to reside on campus for their first year enrolled at the Webster Groves campus.
