South Campus Apartments

South Campus Apartments are located about a seven-minute walk from Atherton union at the corner of 42nd Street and Haughey Ave. While these apartments are not owned by Butler University, we do a “master lease” each year with South Campus Apartments and staff and manage these apartments in the same fashion as our other on-campus apartments. Butler has partnered with Christian Theological Seminary for many years to offer these apartments as another location for Butler students. South Campus 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 a couch, chair, and TV) with a wall of a sliding glass door that offers ample natural light. A dining area just through the living room does not come with table or chairs. The kitchen includes a full-sized (C-units) or apartment-sized (B-units) refrigerator and oven/stovetop, and dishwasher. Although there is no microwave provided, residents are allowed to have one. Most apartments are two-bedroom, four-person apartments. Each resident gets a bed, mattress (XL twin), desk, desk chair, and dresser. There is at least one and a half bathrooms in each apartment; some apartments have two full bathrooms. The apartments have overhead lights in the entranceway, dining room, kitchen, hallway, and bathrooms. Students will need to provide their own light sources for the living room and bedrooms. 

B-units have washer/dryer in unit and C-units have access to free laundry on site.

For parking, Students may park in designated South Campus parking lots with Butler “T” parking pass.

Students assigned to apartments are not required to participate in the University’s meal plan because they have full kitchens in the apartments. However, they may choose to purchase a meal plan to supplement their own cooking.

South Campus Apartments residents are invited to participate in building-wide programs as well as programs for the entire apartment community (includes the Apartment Village).  

There is a full-time Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) and a graduate student Assistant Residence Life Coordinator (ARLC) who are responsible for the entire apartment community, including South Campus. There is also an Apartment Community Assistant (ACA) who lives in South Campus Apartments and works directly with the residents. The entire staff of ACAs provides programming, support, and on-call duty coverage for South Campus Apartments as part of the larger apartment community.
