With a total of 17 units that house close to 13,000 students, Purdue has the largest residential life program at a university without a live-in requirement. Here are are just a few of the perks that take University Residences beyond expectations:
- LIVING/LEARNING AND LEADERSHIP opportunities.
- Award-winning DINING COURTS.

PURDUE MEMORIAL UNION: THE CORNERSTONE OF CAMPUS
The purpose of today’s Purdue Memorial Union, or the Union, differs little from the original intent of those who worked so passionately to establish it early in the 20th century. From the start, the Union stood to enrich the quality of life on campus and to build community among our diverse Purdue family. Today, the Union continues to be the central meeting place and hub of campus.
From tasty cafés, coffee shops and study spaces galore to open lounge areas with couches, the Union captures the essence of what it means to be a Boilermaker. From studying and work to social time and bowling, the Union is a one-stop shop for campus life. Through conferences, activities, and meetings, the Union brings together a variety of ideas and bridges campus and personal life.
