Campus Housing: There aren't many housing options!

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere at IUPUI is very welcoming and encouraging. Faculty and other students at IUPUI not only help students with courses by taking the time to host review sessions and work in academic help centers specific to multiple subjects, but they also encourage IUPUI students to have a voice. There are multiple discussion boards around campus that serve to allow students to express their ideas concerning a wide variety of topics including politics, legislation, philosophy, and everyday entertainment topics. Anyone can stop by to write something on a board in response to the topic or in response to other students' ideas. This is a great way to understand the different views that students hold.

Dorm life at IUPUI is also a very fun experience. Although on-campus housing is expensive, IUPUI provides great living conditions. There are two dorms on campus available to freshman only, one of which (University Tower) became a dorm only a couple of years ago after being a four star hotel. This is the dorm that I lived in during my freshman year at the university. University Tower is located at the center of campus just across from the main campus center, which is a great location. Important and helpful buildings are in very short walking distance and there is a dining hall in the building. For continuing students at IUPUI, there are fully furnished apartments on campus. There are always shuttle buses running from the apartments to other places on campus, but the apartments are still close to the main campus center. Students also have the opportunity to stay in these apartments as part of a residential-based learning community. I was accepted into the Women in Science House, which means that I will be in the same building as 29 other studious women who were accepted into this learning community and one of these women will be my roommate. The apartments offer a bit more privacy by providing a separate bedroom and bathroom for each roommate.

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, but a lot of my friends do and they say the atmosphere in the dorms is wonderful and they're happy that they live on campus.

Campus Housing: In my point of view the iupui campus is very enticing.The surroundings they have set up brings in anonymous prospects to come and check out the college itself.The community is very clean and very easy to go around also the dorm are large enough to bring in extra things in the college itself.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students, even freshmen, live off campus. There are several reasons for this, especially the high cost and low quality of on-campus housing. Compared to off-campus living in Indianapolis, the dorms and campus apartments should be a second choice. Although the campus apartments are fairly nice, they cost much than off-campus apartments that are just as nice or nicer. Besides, the rules that accompany living in on-campus housing—no candles, no incense, no pets—aren’t worth the worry when students can just get a place a few blocks from classes.

The one traditional residence hall on campus is Ball Hall. It houses about 300 people, most of those being female students, and is reserved for freshmen only. The building itself is pretty secure, and students are required to show ID before entering. This is not usually the preferred living arrangement, but it has proven to be the prudent choice for students who don’t know the Indianapolis area well.
