Renew your housing application with University Residences for the 2023-24 academic year.

Your campus. Your home.

Please note: The process for Contract Renewal will be changing for the 2023-2024 school year. 

University Residences is using a new contract renewal process this year. Now is the time to be thinking about your housing for next year. Beginning October 12, you can share your interest in returning to University Residences by logging into the housing portal during what we are calling the Interest Phase. Once in the portal, click Contract Renewal (Renew My Housing) in the top navigation bar, then choose "Yes" or "Maybe" to continue to the term selector and housing application. If you are interested in living in University Residences, all applications must be signed by December 20, 2022. With a signed application by December 20, you may continue to make changes to your selections and/or cancel your application through February 28, 2023.

Please read carefully through the following sections to ensure you are prepared to reserve the space you would like for the 2023-24 academic year.

Contract renewal is a phased process based on where you currently live and your university classification. Apart from the Interest Phase from October 12 – October 23, each phase becomes active at 8:30 a.m. and remains active until December 20, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. Depending on your current housing assignment, you may have the opportunity to renew your contract in your current room. Please see our updates and changes section to learn more about these locations.

Contract Renewal Phases

October 12 - October 23, 2022: Interest Phase

Check your Purdue email. Log in to the housing portal and let us know if you’re planning to live with us next year. Your response is required if you would like to select a room and a roommate for next year.

  • Once in the housing portal, click Contract Renewal (Renew My Housing) in the top navigation bar. From there, choose "Yes" or "Maybe" to indicate your interest. It is important to complete this step to be eligible for the next phases of renewal.
  • If you currently live in a University Residences Boiler Apartments (URBA) location scheduled to be open next year or live in a space eligible for returners, you may select your current room. If you decide you would like to change rooms for the 2023-24 academic year, you will have to wait until your assigned time slot – which you will receive via email.
  • If you have not decided whether you will be living in University Residences next year, we advise you to indicate you intend to return to University Residences to keep this option available to you. You will have until February 28, 2023, to cancel but if you fail to respond or express intent during this time, you will have to wait until December 5 to choose a room, our last chance phase.
October 20, 2022: Roommate Selection Phase

Log in to the housing portal to begin your roommate selections. All roommates must have responded YES that they plan to live in University Residences next year. 

Beginning October 26, you will be emailed an assigned time slot for when you will be eligible to select a room for your 2023-24 contract.

  • You may begin building roommate groups within the housing portal. Roommate groups are people that you are interested in living with next year.
  • If you want to request a new, incoming student to University Residences for the 2023-2024 academic year, your friend must have already started a housing application in the new student housing application portal for the 2023-2024 academic year. The new student housing application portal will open in mid-January 2023.
    Very important! You will not be able to request a current student presently living off campus or an incoming transfer student for your roommate as these students will need to place their names on a waiting list to sign a housing contract if space is available after May 5, 2023.
  • You will have the opportunity to request a roommate during contract renewal.
    Very important! If your roommate request is accepted, you will also need to assign your accepted roommate request with you beginning with the start date of your current university classification phase date (see priority phase dates below).
November 1, 2022: Junior / Senior Room Selection Phase Begins

Senior and junior students who signed an application and need to select a room may begin doing so.

November 9, 2022: Freshman / Sophomore Room Selection Phase Begins

Freshmen and sophomore students who signed an application and need to select a room may begin doing so.

December 5, 2022: Last Chance Phase
  • Students who did not respond "Yes" or "Maybe" in the housing portal indicating they would like to return to University Residences during the Interest Phase between October 12 – October 23 will be able to visit the housing portal and sign a housing application for the 2023-24 academic year as space permits.*

    *As of November 17, 2022, all allocated space for contract renewal has been reserved.
December 20, 2022: Deadline to Sign an Application
  • This is the deadline to sign a housing application for the 2023-24 academic year.
  • You are advised to sign an application by this date even if you are unable to secure a specific room. You will have until February 28, 2023 to secure a specific room in University Residences and/or move to any spaces that open.
January 17-January 31, 2023: Spring Only Residents Phase
  • Students who have a spring-only housing application for 2022-23 may enter the housing portal, sign an application and select an open bed space for the 2023-24 academic year.
February 28, 2023 11:59 p.m.: Contract Renewal Ends
  • This is the deadline to make changes to your housing selections for the 2023-24 academic year.
  • This is the deadline for students with a signed application, but no bed space, to secure a bed space.
  • This is the deadline to cancel your housing application for the 2023-24 academic year.
  • You can make changes to or cancel your signed housing application at any time during the contract renewal process. Contract renewal closes on February 28, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. EST, at which time all signed applications in the system become legally binding. Beginning March 1, 2023, at 12:00 a.m. your signed application for the 2023-24 academic year may only be canceled if you will NOT be attending Purdue University during the 2023-2024 academic year contract term.
March 1, 2023: Contract Renewal System is Closed
All signed applications without a reserved bed space will be canceled. If this applies to you, you will be notified via your Purdue email account.
  • Any changes to signed meal plans will need to be held until July when you may request changes via the housing portal again.

UNIVERSITY RESIDENCES UPDATES AND CHANGES

There will be several changes in University Residences effective for the 2023-24 academic year.

During the Interest Phase, you will be asked if you are interested in a new living option this year: Aspire Apartments. These apartments will be available for occupancy continuously for Fall, Spring and Summer terms. This option would be convenient for those students planning to remain on campus for Summer 2024. If you would like to move up to living at Aspire, look for the “2023-24 Academic Year + Summer” option when you make your selection. Otherwise, choose “2023-24 Academic Year” if you would like to live in any of our other options. 

If your space is available for the upcoming academic year, you will see it as an option during the Interest Phase. Otherwise, you will be unable to select your same room for the 2023-24 academic year. We advise you to respond "Yes" or "Maybe" to indicate your interest in the housing portal between October 12-23 and select an available space during your assigned time.

Important Note: If you want to participate during a particular phase, you should renew your application as soon as you are eligible or the space may not be available once the next phase begins. For example, if you do not select your same room, choose your meal plan and sign a housing application during the “same room intention” phase, your room may be reserved by another student during the subsequent phases or may be closed for other space management needs. Need help? You can contact us via email or call the Central Assignments Office at (765) 494-1000. We are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. (EST).
