Fall Opening 2018
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.
The residence halls will open for the fall 2018 semester on Saturday, August 18. All new students will be assigned move-in appointment time based on their Fall housing assignment. The time range for these move-in appointments will be between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. on August 18. A student’s move-in appointment time and further move-in instructions will be sent via email in late-July.
When you arrive on campus, please report to your assigned building to check in. Student Volunteers and University staff will be there to assist you and your family in unloading your vehicle. If you are not able to arrive on campus on this day, please contact our office.
Your move-in begins on Saturday, August 18, 2018, starting at 3 p.m. Please do not arrive to campus prior to 3 p.m. There will be over 800 new students and their parents and siblings moving in the morning. You will find the afternoon and early evening the best times to move into campus housing. Also, please note that you may also move in on Sunday or Monday starting at 10 a.m. each day.
As usual, when you arrive on campus, please report to your assigned building to check in. If you are not able to arrive on campus by Monday, August 20, 2018 please contact our office. The first day of classes is Tuesday, August 21.

New Student Room Selection Process
Welcome to Valparaiso University! We are happy that you will be joining our campus starting in the Fall of 2018.
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.
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.
