You'll find a community were you belong.

On-campus housing not only helps you find a community where you belong--it also leads you to meaningful friendships that will last a lifetime. With a variety of residential options, from traditional dormitories to apartment communities, you'll find the right college experience for you.

As a freshman, you'll have the opportunity to live in Ball Hall, University Tower (the four-star hotel turned campus oasis) or the new North Hall. These options give you a traditional college housing experience. If you want a twist on tradition, the Riverwalk Apartments and Townhomes at IUPUI provide a bit more independence while still keeping you involved the in the Jaguar community.

Environments where you'll thrive.

When you're studying science, it's great to live with people who understand what it's really like to be excited about the discovery you made in lab or the struggle of an organic chemistry final. Science living-learning communities cultivate a supportive environment that will truly feel like home.

The first year of college is all about new experiences; late nights studying, more fun events than you know what to do with and lots of pizza. The STEM Community in North Hall is just the place for you to get the most out of experiences like these with a diverse group of first-year students who are also studying science, technology, engineering or mathematics. Upperclassmen STEM residential assistants are there to help you unlock the secrets to finding the best food on campus or acing your calculus test. Plus, you'll learn how to unleash your inner jaguar while rowing in or cheering on the STEM Floor team at the IUPUI Regatta!


North Hall is the first traditional residence hall constructed at IUPUI since the founding of the campus in 1969. The 172,000 square-foot building, located on North Street, provides housing for 700 students. The residence hall has been intentionally designed to promote resident interaction through the creation of welcoming common spaces, including a grand lobby and micro-lounges throughout each residential floor. Additionally, the building features a computer lab, game room, fitness area, laundry facility, a large programming area, and two classrooms. 

Residents assigned to North Hall will be required to select a meal plan. Please visit food.iupui.edu for more information.
