Select an Orientation Session

The information below details the Orientation Housing events that are available. (Note: For Orientation guests, you must sign up for housing during the same dates you've already requested with Orientation.)

Guests may stay up to two nights surrounding their orientation session. Tip: Most Orientation families and students only stay one night, that being the night before your Orientation session.

Because of our restroom configuration in Studebaker East Complex, we are not able to provide private facilities for families with minor children. Because of this we are asking that minor children not be brought to on campus housing for Orientation.

As an alternative location, we are encouraging families in this situation to stay at the Ball State Student Center Hotel on campus, you can book online at

Before beginning, please be ready to provide the following:

  • Your Ball State email address
  • The names of adult family members (up to 4) planning to stay in the Residence Hall
  • Credit Card*

*Alternatively, payment in the form of a check or money order can be sent via mail.
