What if I'm not Episcopalian?
All students are welcome at Rockwell House. You don’t have to be an Episcopalian, or even know much about church, to come eat, have fellowship, or worship with us. Whoever you are, wherever you are on your journey of faith, we’d love to have you join us at Rockwell House.
How do I get to Rockwell House?
Rockwell House is located on Forsyth Blvd., about a seven-minute walk from the WashU South 40. Some students walk or bike to Rockwell House. Others, especially our SLU students and our older WashU folks, take the Metro, drive, or carpool; we have parking spaces in the back! We’re the house with the red door!
Do I have to dress a certain way?
Nope! We’re a ministry of and for students, so whatever you’d wear to class, campus, or the dining hall is probably just fine.
What if I have food allergies or a special diet?
We’re always happy to accommodate dietary restrictions - just let us know in advance! As needed, we’ve cooked for folks who are vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, garlic-and-onion-free, etc., and we’re always careful about reading ingredients and preventing cross-contamination. (We’re also happy to share any ingredient list or preparation details with you.) For Sunday night dinners and The Feast on Wednesdays, we ask that you email firstname.lastname@example.org 24 hours in advance so we know to have a meal ready and reserved for you.
Are you open and affirming to LGBTQ+ individuals?
Yes! Rockwell House welcomes and affirms people of all sexual orientations and all gender identities and expressions, including in all our leadership positions. All our bathrooms are single-stall and gender-neutral, and we promise to believe you when you tell us what your pronouns are. The Episcopal Church (our denomination) also invites LGBTQ+ individuals to receive communion, serve in leadership, be ordained, and get married.
