Online Room Selection for Fall 2015 is available!

It is time to start finding your Crusader Home for the next academic year!


The Office of Residential Life is excited to begin the Online Room Selection process for the 2015-2016 academic year.  


As a reminder, University Housing Policy requires all freshman, sophomore, and junior students to live in University-operated residence halls.

All students who are currently living in campus housing must visit the Housing Self-Service (via DataVU) in order to indicate to the Office of Residential Life your intentions for the 2015-2016 academic year. Students who need on-campus housing for Fall 2015 should complete the On-Campus Housing Application no later than Friday, February 27, 2015. Online Room Selection will begin March 23 and will end March 27, 2015. Students will be able to view their online room selection appointment date and time in their Housing Self-Service March 18 & 19.


Students who do not intend to live in campus housing for the 2015-2016 academic year (ex. transferring, studying abroad or have an internship for the Fall 2015 semester, graduation or other exemption criteria as described in the Student Guide to University Life) should visit their Housing Self-Service and complete a Housing Cancellation Form for Fall 2015. To receive a 100% housing deposit refund students need to cancel their housing through THE HOUSING SELF-SERVICE no later than Friday, February 27, 2015


Living-Learning Communities

We have some on-campus residential opportunities.  Please see our descriptions for this information on our LLC website, and if you’re interested in applying to any of these communities, please fill out the Living Learning Community Application available in Housing Self-Service by Friday, February 13, 2015.

Spring Break

The residence halls close for SPRING BREAK on Saturday, FEBRUARY 28, 2015 at noon and will reopen after Spring Break on Sunday, MARCH 15, 2015 at noon. 



Limited Break Housing is available in Brandt Hall, Wehrenberg Hall, and Uptown East for the following reasons:

  • International or INTERLINK Students
  • VU athletes in mid-season with practice and/or games over break
  • Students whose home is 500 or more miles from Valparaiso
  • Students participating in a credit-bearing activity such as student teaching, internship, or co-op
  • Students participating in a VU sponsored service trip


Students ARE NOT automatically eligible for break housing if they hold an on or off campus job that is not directly associated with a credit-bearing academic program.



The Office of Residential Life must receive applications for Spring Break housing by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 13th.  Additionally, students who do not properly sign up for break housing by the posted deadlines and need accommodations may also have to pay a late application fee ($25) to receive permission to reside on campus during the break period.
