Valparaiso University's Office of Residential Life

Valparaiso University's Office of Residential Life The Office of Residential Life works to provide safe and comfortable living and learning communities. We intentionally design programs, services, and leadership opportunities.
(3)

Our nine residence halls and two apartment complexes are home to 2000 undergraduate students. Of these residence halls, one houses members of VU's six national sororities. All first-year, sophomore, and junior students are required to live in approved University housing. Residentiality 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 VU. The Office of Residential Life provides various programs, services and leadership opportunities which promote the student learning mission.
