First Street Towers

Welcome to First Street Towers, where you will have the opportunity to learn about yourself and acquire necessary life skills through involvement in our residential community. First Street Towers contains single rooms with private baths. Residents can mingle and study in community spaces, including lounges on every floor, or enjoy the quiet privacy of his or her own room.

Making Connections

Even though you won't have a roommate, you will be provided with experiences that will aid you in establishing connections, become a support and resource to others and work toward the common goal of academic success. You are encouraged to take part in the leadership opportunities provided in the hall whether it is through planning events in the community, voting during surveys or participating in community activities.

Making An Impact

We are focused on providing you with a living and learning experience that will help you succeed at Purdue and beyond. Lean on your peers, your resident assistant and the professional staff dedicated to supporting the steps you want to take to pursue your passions.

First Street Towers is also right across the street from Earhart Dining Court and Meredith South Hall (Panera and Qdoba are inside) and a short distance from both Windsor Dining Court, Hillenbrand Dining Court and several retail dining options. 

"I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will."
