Apply for Housing

University Residences is more than just home for Boilermakers, it is "the" place to live! We house more than 12,000 students throughout our system - in traditional style residence halls to off-campus apartments. We offer support, resources and academically aligned growth opportunities. We're happy you're interested in living with us and we imagine you have a lot of questions about the assignment process.

First, our room and hall assignments are an automatic process. We take your preferences and roommate requests into considerations but due to the large volume of students like you who want to live on campus, we unfortunately cannot always give each student their first choice but we do our best. No matter where you are assigned to live, we want it to be a enjoyable experience and one that supports your academic success at Purdue. 

The first thing you should know is that our housing contract is a legally binding document. Please read it carefully. There are options and we welcome your questions and want to address your concerns. Also, please pay close attention to the housing deadlines as they are strictly enforced to ensure ample time for our team to complete the assignment process.
