Cochran Builders and Apartments

The Cochran apartments are located mere steps away from the Purdue campus so you can’t blame your commute when you show up late to classes. The Cochran staff want the living experience to be as student friendly as possible, and because of that you can deal with all your payments and maintenance requests online. If that isn’t enough for you, the community page listing events for fellow tenants might just hook you in.

Great service, great timing, great prices for apartments, easy to understand processes and leases, definitely check them first before any other realty in Purdue.

Morris Rentals

The versatility and convenience of Morris Rentals has pleased countless Purdue students and alumni throughout their history. The company offers your choice of an apartment or house with a bunch of different floor plans available, so if it’s just you flying solo, they got you covered, if it’s you and a few buds, they got you covered. Morris also has you covered when it comes to transportation as you are located in close proximity to campus and also right by a bus line. How neat is that?

Morris is the best rentals company in WL! Their prices are very good and you get a 3 year price freeze. They offer online rent payment as well as other methods. The maintenance staff is fast and helpful. They are also very flexible and reasonable

Faith West Student Housing

Faith West is a residential community minutes north of the Purdue campus. It is to be noted that the community enters a covenant in order to be free from the excess of the college experience. While this will turn off some students, it can be a God send (no pun intended) for others. They call themselves Purdue’s premiere student residency with a purpose, if you’re down with that, definitely check these guys out.

Our favorite review

What’s different about this housing compared to any other? Not a ton at a surface level. It has sweet workout facilities, a gym, and a nice study lounge with private study rooms as well. But what really stands out is the interaction you have with other residents who can quickly and easily become good friends. The staff are cool and easy to get to know and some of the residents work as Resident Life Coordinators to organize laid-back events monthly and spontaneous stuff even more frequently (which generally includes free food, WOO!) Best place I’ve lived in the Lafayette area while going to Purdue. (Lived in dorms, another apartment and here.)

Hilltop Apartments

The Hilltop Apartments have been up over 70 years so it’s safe to say they’ve seen a lot of stuff. The cozy apartments located right on the campus of Purdue offer you the freedom of living with you friends along with the convenience of being sanctioned by the university. The events going on year round will help you enjoy your living experience and feel more connected to the campus. Check out Hilltop where they want you to succeed in school and in life.

I love my rental house with Titan! The move in process was very easy and they helped ensure my move in was stress-free. Maintenance has had a reasonable response time in the year I have lived in my home. I love the convienece of paying my rent online and the fact that Titan accommodated my 100 lb dog!


The Weida apartments are owned and operated by Purdue Alumni so it’s safe to say they know a thing or two about college living. With a dedication to provide quality and affordable living for 40 years, Weida is one of West Lafayette’s best. Also, they have a really cool owl logo that’s similar to Drake’s clothing company so that alone is on point.

Our favorite review

Love living here! I did roommate matching, and it worked out perfectly. Terry, who works in maintenance, is a really great guy. He responds to work orders very quickly, and fixes everything right the first time. You don’t find many people like him working in maintenance at other complexes in West Lafayette.

And there you have it, West Lafayette’s premiere places to live based off of their Google review scores by fellow students who have been there before. Now get your friends together, and set up some showings. Or you can go by yourself if you’re into studio apartments.
