Purdue Village

All Purdue Village apartments and buildings are scheduled to be decommissioned by Summer 2022.

Welcome to Purdue Village, a globally inclusive community for undergraduate students, single graduate students, and family residents that provides opportunities to meet and interact with others from around the world. Purdue Village is a safe, affordable housing option you will want to continue to call home away from home – close to classes, bus lines, labs and all campus activities.

Purdue Village has about 400 apartments occupied by undergraduates, single graduate students and students with families. Apartments are 16 units per building. All apartments are air-conditioned and utilities are included.

Location

Purdue Village is located in the Discovery Park area on the west side of campus, on the south side of State Street that borders Airport Road. Ample parking is available on-site, conveniently located within lots adjacent to each building. CityBus routes also have several bus stops inside Purdue Village.

Dining Options

Purdue Village apartments are equipped with full kitchens. Purdue Village is also close in proximity to University Residences' Dining Services locations. Several retail locations are also within walking distance, such as Crave Food Hall inside Aspire, within Purdue West Shopping Center and Indie Coffee Roasters (opening Summer 2021) across Airport Road in the new Provenance neighborhood.

History

Built in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, Purdue Village apartments offers unfurnished one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartments for families, furnished one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartments for single graduate students and furnished quad-style apartments for undergraduate students.

Is Purdue Village Being Torn Down?

Yes. Purdue University is currently in the middle of a long-planned development project in the area known as Discovery Park, which includes the current location of Purdue Village. Purdue Village has a rich history and tradition on campus, and we have been proud to serve students and their families. The demolition is being conducted in phases, with all buildings closing in May 2022. Scroll down this page for more information on decommissioning and please share any concerns you have with our staff via email or by calling the Purdue Village office at (765) 494-4140. Residents of Purdue Village will be notified of construction/decommissioning updates via their purdue.edu email. 

 

April 2021 Update On Next Phase of Decommissioning

As part of the ongoing development in the area, the next phase of decommissioning will begin in late summer 2021.

Residents will be displaced in the following buildings after May 30th, 2021:

  • 139-146
  • 217-220, 223 and 228

All buildings will be decommissioned in May 2022. If you have renewed your contract for a building not listed above, you will not be impacted until this time.

Please know, first of all, that your current contracts for 2020-21 will be honored in full and that we are working on several options for you for housing in 2021-22; for many residents, you will have the option to simply move to another equivalent Purdue Village apartment. Our primary goal will always be to be to take care of you and to communicate with you openly and regularly.

Details are still being finalized, but here are the basics of what you can expect:

The ability to cancel your contract for this academic year and/or next by May 1st, 2021, without penalty, if you wish to find alternate housing outside of University Residences. You would need to vacate by May 30th, 2021.

Depending on your current student classification and contract agreement, a variety of housing solutions for the 2021-22 academic year, including:

For families: Equivalent apartment in Purdue Village.

For individual graduate students: Either an equivalent single apartment in Purdue Village, or a two-bedroom apartment in Purdue Village with one roommate at a lower rate.

For undergraduate students: Similar apartment in Hilltop (for the price of the lower Purdue Village rate), or the option to move to another residence hall and pay the hall’s regular rate.

Financial assistance for families and graduate students in moving to other University Residences’ accommodations. You will receive a credit on your August rent based on the type of move required.

Another letter in early April with more details, including what specific housing solutions are available to you for the 2021-22 academic year.

We know that many of you have lived in the Purdue Village community for several years, and we are honored that it has been home to so many of your important life events — graduations, new jobs, new families.

We also know that this transition will likely spark many questions and concerns, and so we are providing a dedicated point of contact to help you navigate the process. Joe Currens, University Residences’ housing transition coordinator, can be reached via email at pvtransition@purdue.edu or by phone during regular business hours at 765-494-4140.

Sincerely,

Barb Frazee, Assistant Vice Provost for Student Life
