Student Housing

Pano of residence hall room

Purdue students have a variety of housing options, both on and off campus. Student residence halls are within easy walking distance of Purdue's academic campus and students may ride our local public bus service, CityBus, for free. The housing contract is accessible via the student's online myPurdue portal about two days after accepting his/her offer of admission.

  • University Residences

    On-campus residence halls. Freshmen are not required to live on campus, but most do. Freshmen admitted for the fall semester are given priority in University Residences if they complete a housing contract by April 15. The contract will remain open until May 5. Residence building assignments are communicated in mid-July.

  • Cooperative Housing

    Homes on or near campus where students with shared interests live together. Members of the co-op houses contribute 2-4 hours toward household duties each week, which makes this a very affordable living option.

  • Fraternities and sororities

    Nearly 50 men's fraternities and more than 30 women's sororities. About 20% of Purdue students are members of Greek organizations.
