Whether you’re sharing a room in our residence halls or making a home in University Apartments, Ball State Housing and Residence Life offers students the benefits that come from being close to classes and activities, living and learning with friends, making better grades, and getting involved in a community. We call it the on-campus advantage.

We invite you to explore what our residence halls have to offer. See where they're located, compare our room and board rates, and learn about our accommodations for students, including those who are transgender. New freshmen may use our online housing application to tell us your room preferences, search for/request a roommate, and choose a dining meal plan. 

Several of our residence halls are new or recently renovated, providing the home-like environment students request. Some halls feature semiprivate bathrooms. In-house computer labs, low-cost laundry areas, fitness centers, study lounges, free cable TV, fast wired and wireless computer connections, and on-site room repairs are other amenities you'll enjoy.

It's no surprise that our residence hall program was named one of the best in the nation for freshmen. Ball State was the only Indiana college on the list. Freshmen tell us consistently that living in the halls helps them become better students and makes them better prepared for life's challenges. We agree and expect students to follow the residency requirement approved by the Board of Trustees.
