Campus Living

Create the community you want on campus with Valpo’s on-campus amenities.

Your college experience should be more than a classroom education. For three years, you’re guaranteed housing on campus. Create your home at Valpo in one of our eight residence halls. Live down the hall from the friends you’ll have for the rest of your life. Build a community of people as unique as you.





With our dining program, you’ll enjoy fresh, made-from-scratch food and menus that focus on seasonal items and provide continuous selections that change throughout the day. Have your choice of a wide variety of nutritious meals, featuring local and sustainable food sources, build-your-own meal concepts, and special options for every diet, including vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free.


We offer different types of meal plans, based on your residency requirements.
