Undergraduate Residence Halls
About 35% of Purdue single undergraduate students are housed in University Residences. Cary Quadrangle, Tarkington Hall, and Wiley Hall are for male students, while Windsor Hall is for female students only. The other residence halls: Meredith Residence HallEarhart, Hillenbrand, Meredith, Harrison, McCutcheon, Owen, and Shreve Halls are coeducational units in which men and women are assigned to rooms in separate wings of a building but share lounge, laundry, and dining areas. Hillenbrand Hall is designated as an upper-class (sophomore and above) coeducational facility.
The undergraduate residences offer every convenience, including lounges, recreational space, dining rooms, kitchens, laundry facilities, postal service, and computer labs. Each room is furnished with beds, desks and chairs, desk lamps, closets, and phones. Students must provide their own towels, blankets, and linens, which you can just purchase here. Each residence hall forms its own organization for self-government, athletic, and social activities. Residents automatically become members of that unit's organization and pay an annual membership fee (approximately $15-$28). Each housing unit has a staff of counselors who can help with personal or academic problems and who assist with student organizations.
