Residence Life

The Office of Residence Life connects residents to other students, the Tech community, and the global society, by promoting personal growth, cultural diversity and civility, and opportunities to be part of a community, in a comfortable and safe living-learning environment.

Residence Life strives to provide students with a living environment that is conducive to both academic success and social development. Our top-of-the-line facilities are staffed by resident assistants who are trained to be proactive in meeting students’ needs. In addition to the amenities provided in our residence halls, we offer programming designed to develop and educate students, leading them to make positive choices for their lives.

Where to Start

Living on campus can be a fun part of your college experience as well as a great convenience. It’s also one of the biggest adjustments you’ll make as you transition from high school to college and can inspire a lot of questions. You’ll find many of the answers at Indiana Tech.

If you’re considering Indiana Tech housing for the first time, we suggest that you take a look at our residence hall options. Keep in mind freshmen are generally housed in Pierson or Kalbfleisch Halls.

Residence Hall Association

Residence Hall Association at Indiana Tech is formally called “Vocal Intersection Proponents” or “VIP” for short. The VIP works to preserve an atmosphere of community, free discussion, inquiry and self-expression for the residents of the University’s on-campus student housing community.  VIP serves as a representative form of government, voices the interests of residents, and promotes the best living conditions and services possible in the residence halls.

All residential students are members just by living on campus, but involvement doesn’t stop at membership!  You can hold an officer position or serve as one of two Hall Representatives elected from your residence hall.  Election for hall reps will be held during the second week in September so begin planning your campaign now!
