Aventura is a great place! It is a new apartment complex (built in 2014), very convenient, and a beautiful place to live. There are both one bedroom/one bath and two bedroom/two bathroom apartments available. The living room has hardwood floors while the bedrooms are carpeted with walk-in closets and spacious bathrooms. Additionally, it is only a ~7 minute walk to campus! Although Aventura is south of the school and most of your classmates will live north of the school (where the restaurants and Whole Foods are located), I never feel like I must walk too much to get to where I want to be. Plus, there is free parking in the gated complex, secure package delivery, the maintenance staff is very responsive, and the managers are extremely friendly and often host events with free food! The complex is also very pet friendly, with a dog park. Overall, I love living here (and will be living here next year too because of how much I love it!).

The lounge, equipped with a TV, couches, and a bar is the perfect place to host a late-night study session or a post-exam gathering. Laundry rooms are conveniently located on every other floor and all maintenance requests are taken care of ASAP. For a reasonable price, Del Coronado has all the amenities of a more expensive building in a great location.

Maryland House

Eric B., M1

  • Price range (monthly): $800 for a one-bedroom (more for granite countertops), two-bedroom
  • Pet Policy: Dogs and cats allowed, $50 deposit
  • Amenities: Water/gas included
  • Parking (monthly): Garage parking $50
  • Walk: 15-20 minutes

4355 Maryland Ave. is located off Newstead St. I moved into a one-bedroom apartment in Maryland House with my girlfriend because we knew we wanted a cat and it was half-way between WashU and SLU. It takes me about 15 minutes to walk to campus (I walk fast). Splitting $800 a month, I probably have one of the lowest rents of the entire class, which is nice when your cat is destructive piece of s#%t (man, I love him). Apartment includes a dishwasher, garbage disposal, and electric stove. The rooms are larger than most one-bedroom apartments I’ve seen because it’s a little farther away. I don’t pay for the garage parking, because there’s always free street-parking. We also went with this place because the management had good reviews and they have been receptive whenever we’ve made requests. I believe the walls are thick because I rarely hear the neighbors. No word on whether they can hear us. I would recommend this apartment if you don’t mind a slightly longer walk.

Metro Lofts

Yash T., M1

  • Price range (monthly): $1300-1600 for a one-bedroom), $1700-$2240 for a two-bedroom
  • Pet policy: Pets allowed
  • Amenities: Washer/dryer in unit, gym,
  • Parking: Covered parking $100

Metro Lofts is the closest apartment complex to campus; it’s a ~9 minute walk from my front door to class. The living room windows are huge, the floor plans are all open, and the apartments are all industrial chic! Some other perks are an in-unit washer dryer, an underground parking large, and the fact that Metro Lofts is literally connected to a Panera. As a caveat, the rent is a little more expensive than most of the other apartment buildings in CWE, so that’s something to consider. I love the convenience and the spaciousness/style of the apartment, and if I had a chance to re-pick apartments, I would absolutely choose to live here again!

Lade S., M1

  • Price range (monthly): $975+ for a studio), $1080+ for a one-bedroom), $1370+ for a two- bedroom)
  • Pet policy: Pets allowed
  • Amenities: Common area with fitness center, game room and study rooms, rooftop access
  • Parking (monthly): Outdoor parking $60/month or garage parking $95
  • Walk: 10 minutes

Montclair is a pretty good deal overall. It has been newly renovated so the many units have all-new appliances and hardwood floors. It’s really close to school (less than 10-minute walk and close to the entrance of the skybridge when it’s cold). The lobby and common areas are also newly renovated, cozy, and useful for hosting events. There’s a really nice rooftop terrace, study lounge, conference room, and game room and we have a gym. The management and staff are really friendly and Montclair often hosts community events for residents and friends! Many other residents work or go to school at WashU so that’s pretty cool. Some of the downsides include basement laundry and it’s maybe a bit more expensive than some other places but definitely not the most expensive. I like living here overall!

Sarah S., M1

  • Price range (monthly): One-bedroom starting at $750, studios starting at $650
  • Amenities: Washer/dryer in basement, 24-hour access to fitness room in Fairmont Apartment building, locked mailboxes. Rent does not cover electric, cable/internet, or air conditioning.
  • Parking (monthly): Underground garage beneath building $70
  • Pet policy: Allowed, with monthly fee
  • Walk: 15 minutes

When I was looking for apartments, there were a few things I was looking for: cheap, great natural light, decent kitchen, and walking distance from the med school. While Monticello certainly isn’t fancy, an “unrenovated” apartment gave me most of what I wanted. The management (which runs out of the Fairmont, one block north) responds quickly (within a day) to most issues, fixing chipped paint and broken window shades, installing my air conditioner, and signing for packages. Not all the apartments in this 7-floor building are the same, obviously, and there are certainly some issues. The bathroom is tiny and needs a major update. The shower will sometimes randomly get hot/cold. My bedroom got really hot this summer, so I had to buy a second air conditioner on top of the one they included. The elevator also stops working every 1-2 months. Mainly, though, I love my big huge space and bright light. It’s also close to all the good food around Maryland Plaza, and the public library. It’s great to afford to live alone, and the 15-minute walk home to Lindell is well-lit and normally feels safe. I personally love to walk, so the sunlight and fresh air can wake me up in the morning before class. I’m planning to live here for at least a couple of years!

Parc Frontenac

Madeline S., M1

  • Price range (monthly): $995+ for a studio, $1250+ for a one-bedroom, $1785 for a two-bedroom
  • Pet policy: Pet friendly
  • Amenities: 24-hr. doorperson, rooftop with great views, gym, bike storage
  • Parking (monthly): Ground lot $50
  • Walk: 10 minutes

When I was looking for apartments, I wanted a place that was close to campus, had good security as I live alone, had a gym in the building and had lots of counter space for all my procrasti-baking. Parc Frontenac met all of my requirements for an apartment. It is about a 10-minute walk to school, has a friendly doorperson 24/7, has a decent gym in the basement, and my kitchen has lots of room to bake dozens and dozens of cookies. A huge added bonus is the rooftop terrace that has views of the Arch and Forest Park, and is a great place to have a class-wide potluck or share a bottle of wine with a friend. The only downside is the cost of Parc Frontenac. I was initially put off by the cost, especially because I live alone, but I personally have found Parc Frontenac to be worth every penny.

Park 44

Andrew Q., M1

  • Price range (monthly): ~$780 for a studio, ~$1050 for a one-bedroom loft, ~$1325 for a two-bedroom townhouse
  • Amenities: Open courtyard space in the middle of the complex, underground garage, package holding during office hours, heat and hot water are included in rent, some units have balconies
  • Parking (monthly): Surface lot $55; garage parking $85
  • Pet policy: One per apartment (25-lb. weight limit), with additional rent and deposit
  • Walk: 15 minutes

Park 44 is a four-story apartment that is pretty centrally located within the CWE and near school. All of the units are fairly recently renovated with new appliances. Pam and Tabitha in the management office are both super nice and the maintenance is shockingly responsive — they’ve been in to fix small things that my cat has scratched up by the next afternoon. I personally chose to live here because their studios are fairly affordable and spacious, the one bedroom lofts are also super nice (open floorplans, full floor to ceiling windows). I highly encourage that you come by to say "hi" and take a look in person!

    P.S. If I have been of help in you deciding to live here, I’d ask that you mention my name when you sign (I do get a referral credit to my rent if you do). Obviously open to chatting if any of you have any questions about the apartment!

    • Walk: 10 minutes

    Located just a short 10-minute, 53-second walk from the FLTC (we timed it) or three minutes from the shelter and warmth of the BJC link (indoor walkway) is our haven in The Ashley on West Pine. The Ashley is an adorable, 22-unit/6-floor building in the middle of the Central West End. We are seconds from Whole Foods, Shake Shack, Hot Box Cookies, and Kaldi’s Coffee. For late nights studying, we can zip over to Kampai and come back with sushi within 94 seconds (again, we timed it). Our bright and sunny two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment has hardwood floors in living spaces, beautiful energy-efficient lighting, and exposed brick walls. We also have some rare amenities: a large elevator, central heating and cooling, an included gated parking spot (one spot), and an in-unit washer/dryer. Management is very responsive to resident requests and even installed a programmable thermostat for us at no cost. Unfortunately, it may be difficult to find a spot — so start your search early.

      The President is a wonderful building on Lindell Blvd. It is connected to the Park Royal apartment building and both are run by the same leasing company. The President was built in the late 1920s and has beautiful apartments with fancy plaster detailing on the walls, cool black and white tiling in the kitchens, and hardwood floors. Even though the apartments are older, they are very well maintained. The apartments are very spacious and come with lots of storage. There is parking available in the building, but there is a long waitlist, so tenants that don’t get a parking spot in the building get parking at the Bank of America next door. The leasing office and maintenance staff are very nice and responsive. Apartments come in efficiency, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and two-bedroom with den. The President is about a 15-minute walk from school and three minutes from Whole Foods. Utilities are included in the rent but parking and internet are extra, and laundry is coin-operated on the first floor.

      The Residences

      Celia C., M1

      • Price range (monthly): $1500-1900 for a one-bedroom, $1900-2100 for a two-bedroom
      • Pet policy: Pets allowed
      • Amenities: In-unit washer/dryer, gym, complementary storage in basement
      • Parking: Free outdoor gated parking
      • Walk: 10 minutes

      The Residences are amazing! Coming from San Francisco, I was very impressed with the amenities offered at the Residences for such an affordable price. The building itself used to be a hotel, so the bottom floor has a massive marble lobby, with additional space in the back containing a fireplace and lounge area, a pool table, and a kitchenette — all of which can be reserved for private events (Friendsgiving!). The building is very pet friendly and has a dog park and a human park (non-dog park). They also have gated garage parking, a great gym facility (with towel service!) in the basement, and all the units have in unit washer dryers (no more quarter-hoarding). The staff are also insanely friendly and helpful with holding packages, fixing things, etc. To top it all off, there is always free coffee and tea (via a big Keurig) and fresh fruit / bars downstairs for all the residents.

My roommate and I really like our apartment! We have plenty of space and convenient amenities. We are within walking distance but can also take a bus to campus. Parking and laundry are so nice, and maintenance has been extremely responsive to the few requests we have made.
