Weeks of Welcome

We're so glad you're here

Welcome to the IUPUI campus, your new academic home for the 2020-21 school year. The Division of Student Affairs is here to prepare you for your academic year, ensuring that you have a rewarding campus experience by providing you with opportunities to meet new people, get to know the campus, and help you find your place here. Each year, we host a variety of events to help you get acclimated to the campus, with events beginning at move-in and lasting for the first two weeks of the semester.
