International Life at S&T

Safe, welcoming town

Rolla has something for everyone. It’s a safe, clean, attractive community in which values of family, hard work and education remain strong. Rolla is located in a beautiful area of outdoor life that’s sure to please many.

Community members are very supportive of the university and its students. The local community participates in the Celebration of Nations and other cultural events. S&T students are welcome at all city events and have full access to city services.

The city’s downtown business district is close to campus. Community events, campus activities and locally owned restaurants, theaters, coffee shops, bookstores and pizza parlors provide a good break from studies. In addition, there are places of worship for many religions, including a variety of Christian churches and two mosques.

International students spend around 16 hours in class and labs. That leaves plenty of time to join international organizations, sports, design teams and travel. This section includes helpful info about:
