Neighborhoods/Housing Information

Central West End (CWE)

The Central West End is across Forest Park from the Danforth Campus, about 2 miles from the law school. It is one of St. Louis’ best areas to dine and have a good time, with trendy shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, and more. It is a popular and convenient area for Washington University Law students to hang out and live, given its close proximity to campus and accessibility via the MetroBus Gold Line, or merely 3 MetroLink stops away. It is a 5-10 minute drive from the Central West End to the law school.

U City Loop/Delmar

The Loop, named after an old streetcar turnaround, is a diverse and Bohemian area of St. Louis where many Washington University students, musicians, and artists hang out and live. Directly north of campus, The Loop is home to over 120 stores and boutiques and more than 40 restaurants and bars. Catch a film at the famous Tivoli Theatre, bowl at Pin-Up Bowl, or check out a concert at The Pageant. The Loop and Skinker- DeBaliviere are within walking distance from the law school, or they are accessible via the Washington University Green Line shuttle.


Just west of Washington University, Clayton is home to St. Louis County government and many corporate offices and law firms. The Clayton and Brentwood communities consist of quiet, friendly neighborhoods in close proximity to campus. There is a lot to offer in the area, such as the Galleria mall, restaurants, gyms, Whole Foods, and more. The Gold and Red Line MetroBuses transport students to and from this area, and they are connected by MetroLink as well. It is a 5-minute drive from Washington University to Clayton.


The Hi-Pointe-DeMun Historic District, commonly known as “DeMun,” is a neighborhood straddling the city limits of St. Louis and Clayton. Home to student favorites such as Kaldi’s Coffee and Sasha’s Wine Bar and bordered by Forest Park and beautiful Seminary Park, DeMun offers something for everyone. With a feel that’s calmer than the CWE or The Loop, many graduate students make their homes here, as well as young families. DeMun is just a 5-10 minute drive from campus.

Dogtown, Maplewood, Richmond Heights

Dogtown is directly south of Forest Park. A hilly residential neighborhood with a new microbrewery, Dogtown hosts St. Louis’ annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. Maplewood and Richmond Heights are a couple miles south of the university. This area is emerging as one of the newest “it” neighborhoods for young professionals, with many restaurants, coffee shops, and bars, including a pinball lounge and the oldest bowling alley west of the Mississippi River.

The Grove

The Grove is an emerging district just south of the Central West End. Long home to much of the city’s nightlife, like restaurants, dance clubs, and gay bars, including renowned soul food restaurant Sweetie Pie’s, The Grove now welcomes a brand new concert venue, The Ready Room. New apartments are rehabbed every day, with young professionals and students pouring into the area. The Grove is a 10-minute drive from campus or a 10-minute walk from the CWE MetroLink station.


Downtown St. Louis is the central business district, the hub of tourism and entertainment, and the anchor of the St. Louis metropolitan area. The area has seen a renaissance of residential development, with thousands of lofts centered on the happening corridor of Washington Avenue, the site of many bars and restaurants. Downtown is also home to many corporate headquarters, law firms, and courts—and more important, the St. Louis Cardinals and Blues.
