On-Campus Living Advantage

Housing and Residence Life offers competitive and convenient housing options designed around student success.  Students can find an on-campus living option that best fits their preferences and academic goals. Through our residence halls, apartments and townhomes, our communities create living environments that are conducive to social and academic success with programming and resources to support learning and personal growth. 

Why Choose On-Campus Living?

Academic Success: Research demonstrates that students who live on-campus earn higher grade point averages than their off-campus peers. On-campus residents are immersed in an environment that emphasizes academic success and creates opportunities for residents to find support through academic programs and resources throughout our facilities. First year students choosing to live on-campus for year two are encouraged to explore our Sophomore Year Experience program within the Riverwalk Apartments.

Safety and Security: Students and families can rest assured knowing that each residential facility is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and staffed with Residential Assistants and a full-time, master’s degree professional. Residence hall entrances are secured by card access and the housing facility and grounds are monitored by both our live-in residential staff, live in officers, and the IUPUI police department.

Getting Connected: Students who are able to make friends and connect with on-campus organizations are more likely to graduate from college. In order to assist residents in making a strong connection to IUPUI, we offer over 300 programs each year in our residence halls in addition to offering over 150 leadership positions.
