Residence Life

Residence Halls

The University of Evansville offers students a wide variety of options for on-campus living, with seven residence halls featuring living arrangements to suit each student’s needs.

Those students looking for a single-sex living environment will find what they are looking for in Hale (men) or Morton and Brentano (women) Residence Halls, while those looking for a co-ed experience can request rooms in Hughes, Moore, or Schroeder Residence Halls. Those looking to add an international flavor to their UE experience will be interested in our International Connection floor in Moore Residence Hall. If you are a more academically-driven student, consider UE’s Honors theme housing in Powell Residence Hall.
