Whether you opt for a private apartment or one shared with a friend, Parc Frontenac offers a short commute to class. Hop on the bus for the 15-minute ride to Saint Louis University, or for the 20-minute ride to Washington University in St. Louis. Keep a bike in the safe storage facility on site for local adventures, or a car in the underground parking garage for exploring further afield. Head to Saint Louis Galleria mall for your weekly fashion fix, or take a tram ride to the top of the city’s famous Gateway Arch.
In the afternoon, come home for a well-earned rest. Stop off in the residents’ lounge for a pick-me-up at the coffee bar, or to catch up with your friends on the comfy sofas. When you get upstairs, head through to your private room, hang your coat in the closet, then collapse on the bed and use the high-speed internet to Skype home. Later, kick back in front of your favorite cable shows, or head to the business center to print your latest assignment.
With work out the way, head up to the rooftop lounge to top up your tan while admiring the impressive city views. Keep yourself in shape with a fitness center workout, then throw your clothes in the laundry facility and run yourself a hot bath. Later, spread your recipe books out on your kitchen’s granite countertops and use your appliances to whip up something special for you and your friends. If you feel like a night out, catch a Broadway musical at open-air theater The Muny, or get tickets to a live show at intimate alternative music venue The Pageant.
