Building Community

Finding a "home" on campus — a place where you belong — is an important part of college life. You'll find your footing, make campus your own and establish lifelong friendships. Here are some of the ways you can find your home at Purdue.

Asian American and Asian Resource and Cultural Center (AAARCC)

The AAARCC brings the Asian and Asian American experience to life through dynamic and culturally enriching resources based on education, integration and support.

Black Cultural Center (BCC)

With cultural arts and festivals, performing arts ensembles, student research trips, and more, the BCC is an exceptional facility for all of campus.

Cooperative Housing

Through Cooperative Housing, you'll find students with similar interests, including an interest in minimizing housing costs. You'll enjoy great friendships while pitching in with household chores.

Fraternities and Sororities

About 20% of Purdue students "Go Greek," joining an organization of brothers or sisters who are committed to leadership, philanthropy and personal development. Fraternities and sororities have been part of Purdue student life since 1875.

Latino Cultural Center (LCC)

Todos Son Bienvenidos — all are welcome at the LCC. At the LCC, you can participate in events, educational programming and informal gatherings throughout the year.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Center

Purdue is among the nation's top universities for LGBT students and the LGBTQ Center is a big reason why we have earned that recognition. The center engages the entire Purdue community with activities throughout the year while serving as a welcoming and affirming location for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

Native American Educational and Cultural Center

The NAECC is home to Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiian students, faculty, and staff who represent more than 45 tribal nations at Purdue. The center provides educational opportunities for the community to learn about indigenous cultures.
