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 housing@covenantseminary.edu 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 60 days. Also, the housing office may make certain revisions to your ad in order to comply with Fair Housing guidelines.

New Income and Housing Opportunity Beginning 26 Jan

I will provide free housing plus a monthly stipend of $650 to a Covenant Theological Seminary student in a University City, MO apartment in exchange for being a roommate. I am a male with a spinal cord injury, and as such, I need a roommate that would be available should I need something at night.

This opportunity could add up to a $1,100 per month, or more, of compensation depending upon your current rent cost per month. This apartment is very near the U City Loop. Within a very short walking distance are the post office, U City library, Washington University, grocery store and dozens of restaurants.

If desired by you this opportunity may begin as soon as June, depending upon your situation. If you need flexibility on a switch over date, such as regarding existing housing rental contracts, let me know, and we can discuss the situation.

The requirement of this opportunity is that a roommate sleep in a separate area but be available if I would need something, which is infrequent. The so-called “shift” times of responsibility are from 11p-7a. I have been blessed with other seminary students in the past, and there is ample time to get to class at Covenant.

I am seeking at least a 6 month commitment. But a year long commitment would be preferred, which could be longer if desired. Interested individuals can call or email with any questions to better understand the situation. Thank you! Contact: Gregory 314-726-5725 gralfr@hotmail.com
