We are excited that you will joining us for Orientation at Ball State!

Rooms are available for each student in DeHority Complex.

To get a taste of what it’s like to live in a residence hall, all students—even commuters—are strongly encouraged to stay. You’ll share a double room with another incoming freshman and have opportunities to meet fellow students and ask questions of orientation leaders. Each room is:

  • able to accommodate two people of the same gender
  • furnished with two beds, bed linens, pillows, and towels
  • air-conditioned

The room rate for students is $25 per person per night.

Family members and students are NOT roomed together during Orientation.


Roommate Requests are not able to be accepted or considered during Orientation.

This is a critical step in making sure that you're reserving space at Orientation in addition to a place to stay overnight.
