Summer Greetings from the Office of Residential Life!

The Residential Life staff is very excited for your return to our community. It is our mission to promote and develop a sense of place and community for our students within our residential program. We are happy to welcome you to our residential family and look forward to working with you this next year.

As you are aware, Valparaiso University believes a student’s residential environment is an integral component of their education and affirms the educational benefits inherent in the residential aspect of the undergraduate experience. The residential experience complements the academic mission by providing a dynamic environment where living and learning interconnect. Furthermore, students are progressively empowered through nurturing, supporting, and challenging opportunities through the various housing options in which they reside during their time at Valpo.

Below are links to some important information about opening for the Fall 2015.  Please review all of the information.

If you have any questions, please contact the Residential Life Office using the contact information located in the top right box on this web page.
