Other Important Information

Housing
University Housing is available for law students in the DePaul Townhouses.  We can also provide assistance in locating area housing and/or a roommate. Information is available on our student housing website.

Please visit the law school's Online Student Center (OSC) at www.stjlawstudent.com under the "Resources" menu to view off-campus housing information.  Listings are added throughout the spring and summer as landlords let us know their availability (most students sign year-long leases beginning and ending each August 1). 

Information Technology
While owning a laptop is not mandatory, many students use a laptop in class and for final exams.We support PC and Mac notebooks, and the wireless network makes it easy for students to access the internet throughout campus. Additional Informaiton and FAQ's can be found on the Information Technology website

Financial Aid and Scholarship Awards
The Law School provides financial aid information on our website.

Loan Refunds
If you are entitled to a refund due to an overpayment (which is most likely due to taking out more loans than there are charges on your St. John's account), you should complete a Student Refund Direct Deposit Form. This money may be used to purchase books, pay rent, etc.  Once the Bursar’s Office receives your refund request, your account will be reviewed and, if you are due a refund, a check will be mailed to you during the first week of classes. Please be prepared to pay for expenses prior to the first week of classes out of pocket, as the loan refund money will not be available until then.
