Leadership and Employment

The University Village community and the Purdue University Calumet campus are truly enhanced by our students’ enthusiasm, leadership, and participation. Students who choose to get involved while pursuing a degree typically excel in their academic studies. Residential living can truly be the other half of your education as a college student. We strongly encourage residents to take advantage of the opportunities offered by The University Village community.
