Purdue wants to make sure you have the best college experience possible. The Office of the Vice Provost for Student Life focuses on the aspects of Purdue that truly help you feel at home and succeed inside and outside the classroom.

We bring together areas like housing, campus dining, student activities, arts and culture, and the Memorial Union. These are all areas that affect your life every day as a student. We know that when you find your "home" on campus — the place where you belong — you'll achieve even greater success.
