Student Housing

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.

  • University Residences - on-campus residence halls. Freshmen are not required to live on campus, but most do. Freshmen admitted for the fall semester are guaranteed space in University Residences if they contract for housing by May 5.

  • 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.

  • Off-campus apartments and houses - off-campus housing around Purdue (in West Lafayette and Lafayette) is plentiful. This searchable database can help.
