Set Up Your My.Butler Account ~ More details

Now that you've been admitted to Butler University, you'll want to set up your Butler username and password. You will use this account throughout your time as a student at Butler. More immediately, this account will grant you access to important information such as your financial aid status, online bill status, housing information, and class registration.

My.Butler log-in information and additional instructions will be sent to admitted students beginning in January.

Consider Your Housing Options ~ More details

Information on residence hall options and your housing contract will be sent directly from Residence Life once your enrollment deposit has been received. 

First-year men typically live in Ross Hall while women may select either Ross Hall (co-ed) or Schwitzer Hall (all-female). Transfer and international students may have additional options. Butler students live on campus through their junior year.

Roommate matches are made based on personal preferences selected on the housing contract. These preferences include questions such as, "Are you an early riser or night owl?" and "Do you study to music or in complete silence?".

Housing and roommate assignments are mailed in July.
