Residential Life

Residential Life

Complementing the missions of Purdue University and University Residences, Residential Life focuses on academic success and helps students become productive, contributing citizens by fostering respect for self, others and community. Living in the residence halls provides students with a safe place to learn about and experience the joys, struggles, realities, issues, and challenges of the ‘real world’. Student life programs are designed to give students opportunities to learn in a variety of settings, help develop the potential that lies within each one, and encourage students to take ownership for their actions with respect for those with whom they interact.
