Whether you live on or off campus, IU Bloomington will quickly become your home away from home. Participate in your community, be a good neighbor, and enjoy all the things there are to see and do.
Living on campus
The 12 residence centers on campus are clustered into three neighborhoods, and each has a distinct blend of programs, dining options, amenities, services, and academic resources. While you’re living in the residence halls, get involved in local volunteer projects and take advantage of musical performances, recreational events, and on-site tutoring and academic advising.
Explore the variety of dining options at IU food courts, cafes, coffee shops, convenience stores and micro-restaurants across campus. There are plenty of options for everyone—vegetarians, vegans, students observing religious traditions, meat lovers, and carb counters.
