There are several types of housing for Polytechnic students, ranging from on-campus residence halls to near-campus apartments. Use the online tools to find housing that meets your needs and preferences.
A learning community is a collective of students from the same major who live among each other in a residence hall, while they share an academic goal or explore a shared interest. Students who participate in learning communities often earn higher grades and have increased exposure to university resources. More than 3,000 first-year students and 1,000 current students participate in Purdue’s learning communities every year.
Polytechnic students can select from any Purdue learning communities.
