Step 3 – Find Housing in Valpo

Undergraduate Student Housing

  • Undergraduate students must live on campus.
  • On-campus housing is in great demand, so you are encouraged to fill out the deposit form as early as possible to secure a space. To learn more about on-campus living and view residence halls and rooms, visit Residential Life.
  • Please note that there is no bedding provided upon arrival, so please bring with you a minimum of $30-$50 U.S. Dollar cash to purchase bedding, basic supplies, and food for the first couple of nights in the residence hall.
    • For summer and fall arrivals, you can wait for a couple of months before purchasing a heavier blanket.
    • If you arrive in the winter, you will need to allow for more cash to purchase a heavier blanket immediately. You should also bring some warm clothing with you.

Graduate Student Housing

  • On-campus option:
    • Graduate students have a convenient and comfortable option for living on-campus, only a few minutes’ walk away from everything a student needs during their time at Valpo. Click Here to see the details of this option in Alumni Hall, as well as instructions on how to apply. 
      • Plan to bring $50-75 USD to purchase bedding, basic supplies & food for the first couple of nights in the residence halls.

Temporary Housing

If your housing is not available at the time of your arrival, you may choose to stay at a nearby hotel. Probably the most convenient option is the Country Inn & Suites right next to campus.
