Consider your housing options ~ More information
Information on your housing options and contract will be sent from Residence Life separately once your enrollment deposit has been received.
Men typically live in Ross Hall while women may select either Ross Hall (co-ed) or Schwitzer Hall (all female). Transfer and international students have additional options.
Preferences: 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 will be mailed in July.
Butler University's On-Campus Housing Requirement: All first-year students not living at home with a parent or legal guardian are required to live in one of the University residence halls through their junior year. Requests to live at home as a commuter student must be approved in advance by the Residence Life Office.
Register for classes ~ More information
You'll choose your New Student Registration day when you submit your enrollment form. Registering early allows you to meet with an academic advisor to discuss course options and schedule, meet classmates in a small group setting and get your college photo ID.
Parents are encouraged to attend registration to meet representatives from different campus offices and become more familiar with Butler University.
JCA majors: Auditions should be completed prior to scheduling a registration session for proper advising and placement.
