At Indiana University, you’re home

At IU Bloomington, you’ll get it all—the ideal college experience with endless academic and extracurricular opportunities, thriving campus traditions, and an unmistakable sense of Hoosier pride.

It’s easy to fall in love with IU Bloomington’s breathtaking campus, with iconic places like the picturesque Arboretum, the grand Musical Arts Center (“the MAC”), and the Indiana Memorial Union, one of the country’s largest student unions, with four floors of dining options, study rooms, a bowling alley, a movie theater, and more. But don’t just take our word for it—visit campus.

Off campus, the friendly, funky city of Bloomington embraces its identity as a college town, with a walkable downtown, diverse restaurant scene, vibrant arts and culture, and miles of scenic outdoors.

Beyond the beautiful setting, you’ll find a warm, welcoming campus with countless opportunities to get involved, explore what you’re into, and find your place both in and out of the classroom.

Celebrate diversity and culture with us

Culture and diversity are cornerstones of the IU Bloomington experience. Today, campus is home to six cultural centers and institutes for African American arts, Asian culture, Black culture, First Nations culture, Latino culture, and the LGBTQ+ community, as well as more than 150 international and multicultural student organizations. And IU Bloomington makes it easy to start your own student organization, so you can make a direct impact on campus culture and community.


Find your calling 

Get ready to explore hundreds of degree programs—many among the world’s best, including a range of top programs related to business and health. You’ll learn alongside professors who care and find a career path that means something to you.

Did you know IU teaches more foreign languages than any other university in the nation? You’ll also be able to gain a global perspective with more than 380 overseas study programs

At IU, you’ll gain real-world experience with internship opportunities beyond imagination—like The Media School’s semester in Los Angeles for budding filmmakers.


Get involved 

Whatever you’re into, you’ll find your people here. Campus is always buzzing with the activity of 750+ student organizations, including student government, IU Corps volunteer programs, campus news websites and broadcasts, and performing groups ranging from comedy to theatre to dance to music.

Cheer on the Hoosiers

But first, step into your candy-striped pants. Hoosier games are the heart of Hoosier pride, and with good reason: IU teams and student-athletes have earned 25 national team titles and 182 Big Ten team titles.

When you’re not cheering on the Hoosiers from the stands, you can also stay healthy with state-of-the-art athletics facilities on campus or participate in intramural or club sports, with teams for 40+ activities ranging from aikido to basketball to swing dance.

Experience IU’s traditions 

From the moment you set foot on campus during Welcome Week, you’ll become a part of a long history of Hoosier pride and beloved traditions. Favorite events include Homecoming, the Little 500 bike races, the First Thursdays arts festivals, and the IU Dance Marathon, a 36-hour dance-a-thon benefitting Riley Hospital for Children.

And the Hoosier spirit doesn’t stop at graduation—with nearly 750,000 IU alumni around the world, you’ll have a family for life.
