Returning Student Housing

All current Butler University students must fill out the housing application regardless of whether they plan to live on campus, live in their Greek chapter house, commute, or be away for a semester (study abroad, internship, etc.) during early spring semester. Please see the details below that you received to your Butler email which include information about the housing application and selection process for the 2024-2025 academic year.

Housing Application Process

The housing application will open on Monday, February 26, 10:00 AM. At that time, any current Butler University student will be able to apply for housing for 2024 – 2025.

Current students will need to complete the housing application by March 22, 2024 at 5:00 PM for their roommate group to be considered. Students who complete the application after March 22, 2024 will be placed in rooms by Residence Life Staff in assigned groups.

If you intend to commute or live in your Greek chapter facility, you will still need to complete this process to seek approval outside of the Butler University Residency Policy (listed below). You will need to follow the instructions in the Housing Application Process section below, select your specific process in the housing application link, and complete that by March 22, 2024 at 5:00 PM.

Sophomore-level students who complete their application by March 22 will receive their housing assignment during the first week of April 2024. 

Housing Selection Process—Apartments Only

Junior-level students participate in the Housing Selection process. If the application is complete by March 22, 2024,  students will receive another email from Residence Life Staff on detailing the time slot you are designated to select your housing assignment with any students in your housing selection group.

Time slots for housing selection will take place from March 27–April 2, 2024. Students can add people to the housing selection group when applying and all groups must be finalized by March 22, 2024 at 5:00 PM .

If your application is complete after March 22, 2024, you will be assigned a housing assignment by Residence Life Staff. You will receive your assignment after all students who are eligible to participate in housing selection and roommate placement have selected their housing assignments.
