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 Warrior Row C.
- Pierson Hall
- Evans-Kimmell Hall
- Frank & Anne Oropeza Hall
- Warrior Row A & B: Townhouses
- Warrior Row C: Traditional
- Yergens-Rogers Hall
- Kalbfleisch Hall – (Closing Summer 2019)
- New Hall – (Opening Fall 2019. To view renderings, visit Residence Halls)
Living Learning Communities
Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are intentionally designed for students who have like interests and want a specific experience as part of living on campus. Tech will have two living learning communities (LLCs) in 2019-20; the Honors LLC in Evans-Kimmell Hall and a new in fall 2019 a community called “Well @ Tech” which will be housed on 1st and 2nd floors in Oropeza Hall.
In the Honors LLC students interact with faculty, local leaders, and other students about the interconnection of the sciences, humanities and technology. This happens through dialogue, connecting discussion with course content, and exploring a variety of topics such as ethics in the global arena to recognizing the importance of diversity and inclusion. Students first must be admitted into the Honors program and complete a supplemental questionnaire expressing interest for consideration.
Well @ Tech is for students who are health-conscious with interests towards personal fitness, healthy living habits/choices, daily organization and time management, and general wellness in all aspects of their lives. The community will support and develop an environment for wellness by inviting faculty, staff, and even local “gurus” to share their expertise, and actively engage in working together to be healthy students. Sound like you? If so, just indicate your interest on your housing application.
Assignments to Evans-Kimmell Hall and Oropeza Hall are double occupancy rooms and require a full meal plan for first-year students.
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!
