Among the 20 largest metropolitan areas in the U.S., St. Louis ranks second in the most-affordable housing market. Our city has gracious neighborhoods and safe housing options. Washington University owns and operates several apartment complexes specifically for graduate students. Most graduate students live in one of the many privately-owned apartments located within a 10-block radius of the school. Both furnished and unfurnished rooms, apartments, and houses are available.
