Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne

Education in action. That's your degree at Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW).



Established in 1964, Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) is the largest university in northeast Indiana. As Indiana's Multisystem Metropolitan University, we are uniquely positioned to serve the region as a crossroads of intellectual, social, economic, and cultural advancement and continue to expand our global reach through research, scholarship, and creative expression.


IPFW combines challenging academics with a focus on student success across more than 200 Indiana University and Purdue University degree programs, taught by nearly 350 full-time faculty. Approximately 13,000 students of diverse ages, races, and nationalities in our family pursue their education on our almost 700-acre campus. Nearly half of our students are first-generation college students and 15% are from underrepresented populations. And 75% of IPFW students receive some form of financial assistance to achieve their academic and career goals.


The Council on Undergraduate Research hosts a Registry of Undergraduate Researchers. The purpose of this registry is to facilitate matchmaking between undergraduates trained with research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree, and graduate schools seeking high quality students who are well prepared for research.


The Office of Career Services at IPFW is helping you recruit IPFW students and alumni for your full and part-time jobs and internships. From posting an internship position to attending a Career Fair, we would like to be a partner in your recruiting and campus outreach efforts.

The new student community is a place where you can be in the center of a thriving student atmosphere, experience all the benefits of university life, and have the privacy of your own bedroom. Most importantly, IPFW Student Housing is a place that is conducive to your academic success.

Library services

The library was named in 1977 for Walter E. Helmke, prominent Fort Wayne attorney and active member of the I.U. Board of Trustees and the Indiana-Purdue Foundation. In 1982, through the combined efforts of the campus and area community, a fund drive succeeded in raising nearly $1 million to establish an endowment for the Helmke Library.
