Unless you are a commuter student, you have to have senior status to move off campus unless you join a fraternity that has housing. Being on campus does have benefits, however, including being closer to classes, and it is usually cheaper just to stay in the dorms. There are also laundry facilities available in each building, free access to the campus computer network and cable, and a housekeeping staff that cleans the bathrooms everyday. Everyone manages to find a dorm that they like the best. Some students love the noise and constant movement of the freshman dorms, so they grab the rooms (which have their own bathroom) on the first floor of those dorms. Other students move into ‘Berg (Wehrenberg), Guild, or Memorial—all of which have been remodeled in the past 10 years. The new option of Uptown East Apartments provides University-owned apartments with the ability to have multiple roommates and amenities while staying on campus.
Overall, the residence halls are pretty nice. The rooms are decent—bigger than the matchboxes at state universities—but not as plush as you would expect from smaller institutions. Some students cannot wait to move off campus, but most find that the community built through staying on campus for at least three years makes a better college experience. The community at Valpo is definitely unique, and the way the residence halls are situated probably contributes to that fact.
