Welcome to University Residences

University Residences is more than just a home for Boilermakers, it is "the" place to live! UR provides an environment that will make you feel right at home and at the same time, right in the middle of campus life.

Your Campus. Your Home.

At University Residences, we make each of our resident’s security, comfort and sense of belonging our top priorities. Purdue housing options are designed to help support your lifestyle and maximize your potential in an affordable way.

You’ll notice that we call our housing 'Purdue University Residences' and not ‘Purdue dorms’. That’s because living on campus provides more than just a place to rest your head—social programming and guidance from student, professional and Residential Life staff provide experiences that round out your education and teach you important life skills that will enhance your networks and skills far beyond your time here. We understand that every college experience is unique, and we’re celebrating those differences by providing a wide array of resources to support your campus living experience.

Your big move begins here! Explore Purdue residence hallsPurdue student housing amenities and everything else you need to know about campus living below.
