IUPUI housing rates are established on an annual basis. In cases of advanced scheduling, the Office of Housing and Residence Life may quote estimated rates with no implied guarantee that the rates quoted will be the actual rates in place at the time of the conference. The rates are per person/per night based on the dates requested. The Office of Housing and Residence Life is required to collect taxes based on the Indiana University Sales Tax Collection Matrix for attendees staying with us for less than 30 days.
Each group booking facilities and services with the IUPUI Office of Housing and Residence Life is required to sign a Group Housing License Agreement. The Office of Housing and Residence Life recognizes the need for advanced and detailed planning in order to optimize the conference experience. As a result, Agreements must be signed by all parties at least 30 business days prior to the beginning of the conference or by the date specified on the Agreement. Failure to return the Agreement by the date specified may release reserved rooms and future reservations will be taken on a space available basis. The group agrees to provide, on the Agreement, a "guarantee number" for housing accommodations. If actual attendance falls below the guaranteed number, the following cancellation charges will apply:
Date of Cancellation
(Prior to start date of conference)
|Less than fifteen (15) days||100% of Cancelled Rooms|
|15 - 30 days||50% of Cancelled Rooms|
|Thirty-one (31) days or more||No Cancellation Charge|
If the actual participation is more than the guaranteed number, the Office of Housing and Residence Life reserves the right to change arrangements and accommodations in order to handle the excess numbers. Participants in excess of the reserved group may not be accommodated if their arrival has not been pre-arranged.
The group agrees to provide the Office of Housing and Residence Life a roster (rooming list) at least two (2) weeks prior to the beginning of the conference. A late charge will be assessed for every day past the roster due date. Groups may also be assessed additional charges for any roster changes after the rooming list has been submitted, including, but not limited to, name changes, room changes, added rooms, etc. Rosters must include name, gender, identifier (staff/youth), check-in, check-out, room type, and roommate.
A reasonable attempt will be made to meet the facility requests of all groups; however, exclusive or restricted use of a building is not typically possible. We will make every effort to place groups together; however, such requests can be met only if levels of participation and overall occupancy permit. Groups may be positioned around other guests or students staying on campus. Please keep in mind that these buildings are residence life facilities and not hotels.
The Office of Housing and Residence Life maintains an aggressive program of renovations and refurbishing that mostly occurs during conference season. Therefore, for groups that return each year, the same facilities, services, and arrangements cannot be guaranteed, although every effort will be made to meet the requests of these groups.
Any changes in arrangements, attendance, or services must be approved by the Office of Housing and Residence Life in writing. The Office of Housing and Residence Life reserves the right to change arrangements in the case of emergencies. The assignment and arrangements scheduled for a group may be changed if the estimated attendance changes. Additionally, Housing and Resident Life reserves the right to consolidate participants in the group as needed. For example, all four-bedroom units would be filled before opening up a new unit unless there are specific reasons (i.e. gender orientation).
Conference planners are offered two options for assignments: (1) Provide the Office of Housing and Residence Life a list of names, including gender, and the Office will complete the assignments and placement. (2) The conference planner may choose to complete the roommate assignments ahead of time. All rosters must be complete and submitted to the Office of HRL no less than two (2) weeks prior to the start of the conference.

Options for Check-In include:

The Indiana University policy on Programs Involving Children was created to ensure the overall protection and safety of children involved in Indiana University programs through the use of background checks, program registration, a mandate for program-specific guidelines, and an emphasis on the legal duty to report suspected child abuse and neglect.
- Indiana state law requires any person who has reason to believe that a child is a victim of child abuse or neglect has an affirmative duty to make an oral report to Child Protective Services (CPS) 1-800-800-5556 or to their local law enforcement or to the IU Police department. Failure to report may result in criminal charges.
- In addition to notifying CPS and/or local law enforcement, state law and the university also require that faculty, staff, students, volunteers, and other university personnel report any suspected abuse of minors to the Indiana University Director of Public Safety.
