Traditional on-campus residence hall housing is currently not the Graduate School’s recommendation for graduate students. Many other options are available to graduate students that are very close to campus, provide an opportunity to live with other graduate students, and are comparable (and sometimes less expensive) in price.
If you arrive in Valparaiso before you have arranged permanent housing, there is temporary lodging available at the Country Inn & Suites which is across the street from our campus. International graduate students receive a special rate of $60 USD per night (including breakfast) when you inform them that you are a Valpo graduate student. Visit the link above or call 219-476-0000 for more information or to make reservations.
In addition, we can arrange for temporary housing in Valpo's on-campus residence halls. The cost is approximately $25 USD per night. If you are interested in this option, we need you to contact us at least one week before your arrival in the US to ensure availability.
One option we highly recommend is the Uptown East Apartments.
Uptown East is a private company, but with connections to the university. Located across the street from campus (you can easily walk to campus from the apartments), they provide a social, community environment much like you would experience in the on-campus residence halls, but with more privacy and higher-end facilities and amenities.
In addition to the one and two bedroom apartments listed on their website, Uptown East offers a special shared bedroom rate for graduate students only:
Two bedroom/two bath apartment for 4 people: $375 per person per month. Each bedroom has a bunk bed and holds two people per room. Choose your own roommates or have Uptown East match you with other VU grads.
For more information e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), or call (219-464-7506) Uptown East Apartments. Be sure to tell them you are a graduate student at Valparaiso University.
Other Off-Campus Apartments
The Graduate School maintains a list of other choice off-campus apartments. Most apartments are serviced by Valparaiso's public bus system, the V-Line for free when you present your Valpo Student ID card ($1 per ride without a student ID). If you'd like to add your name to our list of other grad students looking for roommates, you can email us at email@example.com.
Because prices change frequently, this information should be used only as a general guide for pricing and availability.
