Living

Living and learning in community develops character.

Valpo is a residential university by design because we believe that residence halls provide living and learning experiences that are integral to your intellectual and social development. We foster an interconnected community where students grow and develop lasting friendships. We encourage you to share your stories, to listen to those stories around you, and to learn about others from all walks of life.

Residence Halls

The majority of undergraduate students live in one of nine university residence halls and apartment buildings or in one of six fraternity houses located on or near the campus. Scheele Hall provides accommodations for sororities and other upper-class women.

Students have the opportunity to participate in the governance processes established for each residence hall.

Dining

FoundersThe Founders Table

Located in The Harre Union, The Founders Table is the main dining room for the campus and includes a large variety of foods including Naples style pizza, a large salad bar, Chef’s Corner, a char-broiler for steaks, chops, and seafood. All items are freshly cooked at each station.

Campus Café

Also in The Harre Union, the Campus Café  is a relaxed dining area with a variety of hot foods, Grab-N-Go items, Starbucks coffee, a bakery, smoothies, and grocery items. The Café also includes a performance stage and a television and is open late night. Students may use their meal plan accounts in the Café as well as Founders Table.

Other campus coffee shops include Grinders, located in the Christopher Center for Library and Information Resources, and the Law School Cafe.

Dining Plans

Valparaiso University’s flexible dining plans are à la carte, which means students begin each semester with a set amount of dollars for purchasing items and are not limited to a fixed number of meals. Students pay only for what they choose to eat, when they choose to eat. All undergraduate students living in residence halls, who are freshmen, sophomores, or juniors (except sorority members living in Scheele Hall) are required to purchase a meal plan.
