Apply for Housing

Living in one of our residence halls or University Apartments is a great value, providing convenience, a supportive environment, and a variety of services! Use our online housing application to submit and complete your contract for the residence halls or the University Apartments.

New students who have confirmed their offer of admissions to the university will be sent information via mail and email (to your Ball State Outlook account) on how to request a space in our residence hall system.

If you have just confirmed your admissions to Ball State, please allow two business days for our system to update. After two business days, you should have the ability to complete your housing application. 


New for the 2023-2024 Academic Year, incoming
first-year students living on Ball State's campus will be eligible to choose their own bed space in the residence hall with the Living-Learning Community that correlates with the major they've declared through
the University.

Signature Experience

The Office of Housing and Residence Life is piloting a Signature Experience opportunity for incoming
first-year students in partnership with the Honors College, the College of Communication Information and Media, and their Living-Learning Communities.
