Since then, IUPUI has come into its own, becoming Indiana’s premier urban research university.
IUPUI is dedicated to doing its part to creating a sustainable future. As a result of its initiatives, the campus has received the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education's AASHE STARS designation.

Our Riverwalk Apartments, on the other hand, are for students who want a taste of independence while still staying connected to the Jaguar community. Ball Hall offers a traditional take on college residence halls, while our serene Townhomes are fully furnished with in-unit washers and dryers.

We also have a functional fitness area where you can work out on your own or join an MX4 fitness class. Two fitness studios are home to our other classes, including indoor cycling with more than 20 bikes just waiting for you to get spinning.

They’re involved because they’re passionate about the work they get to do through the organization.They’re excited about the relationships they’re building—professional and personal.
And they’re excited about where their experiences will take them.
It was this commitment that was behind the merger of the Indianapolis campuses and programs of IUPUI—some of which are more than 100 years old—that won accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission in 1969, creating IUPUI.
The campus had very good academics and offered students a lot of opportunity to get involved around Indianapolis.
The university was located downtown and offered a great opportunity for students to get involved in their career field and focused on academics.
