Housing & Residential Life
Vincennes University has seven residence halls. Each hall has comfortable study rooms, recreation areas, laundry rooms, and vending machines. All rooms have air conditioning and heat.
All have single beds or bunks (with extra-long twin mattresses), desks, chairs, closet and drawer space, wastebaskets, draperies/blinds, extended basic cable television, and high speed internet connections (with use of an ethernet cable). A limited number of private rooms are also available.
Unmarried students under the age of twenty-one are required to live in University residence halls when space is available. Exceptions include military veterans and students who live off-campus with a parent or legal guardian.
Effective Immediately - Hoverboard Information
Recent information has revealed that the batteries in Hoverboards, Swagways, IO Hawks Skywalkers, and similar devices are dangerous and prone to explosion, creating a safety and fire risk. Until a time that the safety standards of these devices are improved, the Housing/Residential Life Office has prohibited them from being in any of our Residence Halls and/or University owned properties. Effective immediately, the use, possession, or storage of Hoverboards, Swagways, IO Hawks, Skywalkers, and similar devices, is prohibited in any of the Residence Halls and/or University owned properties until safety standards for them can be developed and implemented.
If you have one of these devices, please remove it from campus. If you receive or purchase one of these devices during the break, please know that you will not be able to have it on campus and if it is found, it will be confiscated.
Housing and residential life questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or 812.888.4225.
