Butler Terrace Apartments

Butler Terrace apartments (BT) are located at the corner of 46th Street and Hinesley Ave., just a block from the main entrance to campus. Butler University does not own these apartments but holds a "master lease" to ensure these apartments are available to students as well as the other benefits and support offered by Residence Life. The BT apartments are available to juniors and seniors. It is also available for graduate students. 

The apartments  have a nice open living room upon entry (large enough for futon and TV center), small dining area just to the left or right of the entry (does not come with table or chairs), full kitchen that includes a full-sized refrigerator and oven/stove top (no dishwasher). Although there is no microwave provided, residents are allowed to have one. There is a short hallway that leads to bedrooms and includes shelves built into the wall for storage. There are two bedrooms in most BT apartments—one double room and one single. All have nice closet space and each resident gets a bed with mattress (XL twin), desk, desk chair, and dresser. There is one bathroom with the sink and vanity outside of the tub area. There is also a large storage area just to the left or right (depending on apt) when you enter the apartment. It has plenty of space to fit a couple bikes and also includes some shelving.  Students will need to provide their own light sources for the living room and bedrooms. 

Laundry is in the basement of both sides of each building.   

Students may park in the Butler Terrace parking lot with the appropriate T parking permit.
