Room Selection 2019-2020: For New Students

Welcome to Valparaiso University! We are happy that you will be joining our campus starting in the Fall of 2019.

Our eight residence halls and apartment complexes are home to 2,000 undergraduate students. Of these residence halls, one houses members of Valpo’s six national sororities. With a six-semester live-on requirement, all first-year, sophomore, and junior students are required to live in approved University housing. More information about our policies can be found HERE.

Residency is a key component of the mission of Valparaiso University. The residence halls are central to this effort by providing living and learning experiences that contribute to the growth and development of students while enhancing their overall education at Valpo. Residential Life provides various programs, services, and leadership opportunities, which promote the student learning mission.

New Student On-Campus Housing Application

As an incoming student, you will complete your New Student On-Campus Housing Application via your Housing Self-Service after you register for classes when you attend FOCUS in June. If you are not attending FOCUS in June, you will be able to complete the application after completing placement exams and registering for classes via phone/skype registration. If you do not take advantage of phone/skype registration, our office will send an email to your Valpo email address to collect your housing preferences, living preferences, and roommate preferences if you have any. Preferences will be due early July.

In your New Student On-Campus Housing application, students are asked to provide emergency contact information, housing and/or Living Learning Community Preferences. Once your On-Campus Housing application is complete, if interested, you will then be able to search for a roommate based on living preferences, or you can search for someone you met at FOCUS. Please note, if you do not request a roommate, you will be paired with an individual based on living preferences.


Residence Hall Opening: Fall 2019

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 provided by the various housing options in which they reside during their time at Valpo.
