The Cottages

In an effort to supplement our housing inventory, Purdue University Residences has partnered with The Cottages on Lindberg to meet the increasing demand for campus housing. The Cottages are located on Lindberg Road in West Lafayette, approximately 2 miles from Purdue’s campus with access to the free campus bus line serving multiple campus locations. Students who live in these apartments will have an Academic Year contract through University Residences and the option of a residential meal plan for dining courts on campus. Each individual Cottage at The Cottages Apartments will be completely occupied by students who have a contract through Purdue University Residences. Our Cottages are located in close proximity to one another, creating a residence hall type of community, complete with Resident Assistants, Residence Education Coordinator, and academic programming. At this location, we offer 2, 3, 4, & 5 bedroom apartments; each bedroom w/ private bath and one person per bedroom. Furnishings in these apartments include:

  • Full size bed
  • Dresser

  • Pub-style dining room table and chairs
  • Couch
  • Coffee table
  • End table
  • Entertainment console

Read what Caleb Waddell, Residence Education Assistant had to say about living in the Cottages last year…

“One of the nicest things for me was having my own private space off to the side where I could go if I had to work, it also had a nice common area with a full-size kitchen I could cook in when I wanted to. We had a laundry room and a pantry. There was plenty of space for storage, quite a large living area and a community center to play games and hang out. So, there were private areas when you needed it and it also had social areas which we looked forward to using.

I am excited to go back to the Cottages this year because I didn’t know everything they had at the time. They have a lot of resources that I was too busy for and didn’t get to use. They have things like a volleyball pit, swimming pool, hot tub, tanning bed. Things that you don’t have access to at other places, and I didn’t fully utilize them last year and am looking forward to doing that this year.

For me, as a new incoming student, my biggest concern would be transportation to class, but there is a bus system that runs frequently to and from campus and late at night and the weekends. So, transportation was not that much of an issue for anyone. Residential Life-wise, it almost seemed more “connected” to me. Having been an RA in the halls before, it kind of got our residents to bond more easily because they were in this new experience. They sought out my help more because of that, and that helped them to get together and meet people more, and to use their resources better, because they had to ask questions instead of trying to figure it out on their own.”
