Residence Life

When you study at a residential university, it means your classmates are right down the hall. Your professors are just a few buildings away, the library is within walking distance, and late-night snacks are available in the dining hall to help you make it through your all-nighters.

At Butler, we have on-campus housing for all of our first-year students. 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. All sophomore and junior students (including those affiliated with a Greek organization) not living at home with a parent or legal guardian will be required to live in University housing or an approved Greek Housing unit of which he or she is a member. Here are a few of your options:
