On‐Campus Housing

On‐campus housing is found through the Indiana University Department of Residential Programs and Services (RPS). On‐campus housing is convenient, cost effective, and simple to reserve. In order to be able to secure the kind of housing arrangements you desire, i.e. number of rooms, amenities, location, etc., you should contact RPS as soon as possible to make arrangements. If you are traveling with dependents, RPS will want to know your arrival date and the number of persons in your family. Find more information about on‐campus housing and start the application. Please direct all questions about on-campus housing to RPS at

International undergraduates may want to consider one of IU’s Living‐Learning Centers that have an international focus: Foster International and The Global Village. International graduate students may prefer to live in University Apartments or Willkie Residence Hall, as these accommodations may be more suitable to the graduate student lifestyle.

Off‐Campus Housing

Accommodations available off‐campus include furnished and unfurnished apartments, houses, townhomes, and single rooms within houses for rent. Some of the advantages to living offcampus include saving money by sharing the cost of housing, utilities, and food with roommates; having a kitchen in which to cook your own meals; and being able to stay in your apartment or house during breaks and vacations.
