Welcome to IUPUI, home of the Jaguars! From the moment you set foot onto our welcoming campus, you’ll be astounded by the broad range of opportunities waiting for you, both in the classroom and beyond. When you’re here, you’re one of us.

Outside of the classroom, you’ll feel right at home with endless academic and extracurricular opportunities awaiting your discovery, treasured campus traditions for you to make your own, and an overwhelming undercurrent of Jaguar pride. 

Our spacious urban campus, located just west of Indianapolis’s downtown, is packed with opportunities. With hundreds of companies and non-profit organizations just steps off-campus, there’s no limit to the possibilities surrounding you. 


A degree of your choosing

Who says you can’t have it all? At IUPUI, you get to choose from two powerful degrees from the state’s most prestigious institutions: Indiana University and Purdue University. With more than 550 academic programs, you’ll be forging your own path and choosing the degree that best fits your dreams and goals. Come and see it for yourself!

Did you know IUPUI is home to the largest medical school in the nation? We graduate more dental professionals than any other institution in Indiana and more doctors than anywhere in the country. Because we’re located in the heart of one of the most connected medical communities right here in Indianapolis, IUPUI is the place for aspiring medical and health field professionals. 

As Indiana’s premier urban research institution, you will have opportunities to engage in hands-on research right from day one, and almost every single student on our campus graduates with at least one internship under their belt. Graduating with work experience figures significantly into your future success!


Live the Jag life

No matter what you’re interested in, IUPUI has a place for you to belong. With over 500 student organizations to choose from, you’re sure to find exactly what you need to make yourself at home. And if you don’t find an organization that you want to belong to, you can even start your own! 

Cheer on your team

It’s hard to miss the team pride at IUPUI! Our campus is home to 8 NCAA men’s sports teams and 10 NCAA women’s sports teams. Because we’re located right at the heart of Indianapolis, you will also have easy access to the state’s pro sports community. If you’re into getting hands-on with campus athletics, you can also take advantage of our recreation facilities, group fitness, and intramural sports opportunities.

Tradition comes to life

With our 50+ year history in Indianapolis, our campus traditions bring that history to life. Every year our students get to experience the best of IUPUI’s beloved traditions with favorite annual events like the Regatta, the canoe race through the Indianapolis Canal, and Jagathon, IUPUI’s dance marathon to raise money for Riley’s Children’s Hospital. Being a Jaguar is more than getting an education, it becomes your way of life!
