Covenant Housing Opportunities

General Information – Please Read

These are housing opportunities in the surrounding community that have been made known to the housing office at Covenant Seminary. If one of these works out for you, please let us know so that we may remove it from the list. You can contact the housing office by emailing or by visiting the One-Stop office on the second floor of Founders Hall.

Covenant Seminary provides this board for the community to post housing opportunities of potential interest to the student body. This list is also made available to those outside the Seminary community. In using this board students, landlords, and any other parties absolve the Seminary from responsibility for any unmet expectations and understand that the Seminary does not endorse the rental property nor the student applicant. Each party is responsible for their own due diligence. Although the Seminary performs some basic due diligence for every ad posted, it is recommended that under no circumstances a renter rents a property that has not been personally toured. The Seminary also recommends that in shared-living/roommate situations, a previous tenant/roommate reference is provided to the potential renter.

To keep this page current, ads are usually removed after 6 months. Also, the housing office may make certain revisions to your ad in order to comply with Fair Housing guidelines.

Carriage house apartment in Ladue 21 May

Large (+800 square feet) and bright one bedroom/l bath apartment with air conditioning, dishwasher, ceiling fans, washer and dryer, hardwood floors, alarm system, free cable, and computer (Wi-Fi) services, off street parking, private entrance but also connects with the main house. Gas heat and hot water, trash pickup and water included.
Electrical service is separately metered and paid by the apartment occupant.
We feel the economic value of the apartment, gas for heating and hot water, cable, and internet services are $1000 a month; however, THIS APARTMENT IS NOT FOR RENT. In exchange for housing, the occupants would work about 20 hours a week divided between gardening and housework. The type of work would depend on the season of the year; i.e. more gardening in spring and fall but would work out to about 20 hours per week in total.
Some examples of housework chores:
- Vacuuming and dusting
- Cleaning baths
- Changing beds
- Wiping down kitchen cabinets
- Mopping tile floors
- Washing windows inside
- Emptying waste cans and putting trash out
- Cleaning appliances
- Polishing silver
- Taking in mail/packages when we are gone
Some examples of gardening/yard work:
- Planting
- Weeding flower beds
- Cleaning flower beds
- Pruning bushes
- Edging
- Some raking of leaves
- Mulching beds
- Snow removal
- Dog care is not included in this time but is of the UTMOST IMPORTANCE. Dog care would involve “wrapping around” our schedule and being available to “sit” if we are not home and total care of both dogs when we are out of town. Of course, we would try to give advance notice of our outings to help in scheduling your time, but you must have a flexible schedule for both DAYS and EVENINGS.
Resident restrictions:
- No smoking or pets
- Maximum number of adults is 2
- No children
- No criminal record

Apartment subletting for Summer at Gulf Drive 30 Apr

My wife and I are looking for a subletter for our apartment at Gulf Drive (In Vinita Park) from June 9th to August first, as we will be out of town for the summer. Our apartment is fully furnished, clean, and located next to many seminary students.

We are asking 375$ for the month of June and 450$ for the month of July (both discounted) and that the subletter would pay for electric. We’ll pay the rest of the monthly rent as well as gas. There is a nearly empty basement with washer and dryer. There is also A/C and furniture. If you are moving to St. Louis and waiting on other housing to open, there is decent storage in our basement.

We are hoping that our apartment might be a space that would be helpful for someone transitioning to St. Louis, or is in need of some temporary housing. To get more information and schedule a meeting please email me at

2 Bedrooms Available in a Rental House near Manchester and 141 27 Nov 2018

I just moved into a 3BR/2BA rental house near Manchester and 141, and have two empty bedrooms to spare. The total rent is $1400/mo but could be $466/mo if split three ways. The house has 1286 sq ft of space, a 3 car driveway (2 cars wide), two full baths and a fenced backyard. Dogs are allowed but require an additional monthly fee. The kitchen includes a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and electric oven. Also, the house does not have a washer and dryer yet but I plan to install both in or before August and until then there is a laundromat 5 minutes away on Manchester road.

About myself: St. Louis has been my home for the last twelve years and I am a proud member of Twin Oaks Presbyterian Church. I went to school at Covenant College (Lookout Mtn, Georgia) and finished at Missouri S&T where I received a bachelors degree in computer engineering. I now work as a firmware engineer for Schneider-Electric. My hobbies include reading, video games, disc golf, eating Chick-fil-a, and rock climbing, although I am currently taking a break due to a shoulder injury.

If this offer is of any interest to you and/or you would like a tour feel free to contact me.
