Weeks of Welcome

Embrace your spot

Welcome to IUPUI, your home away from home. The Division of Student Affairs is here to prepare you for life. We provide opportunities for you to connect with new people, get to know the Indianapolis community, and help you develop your unique spots as a Jaguar.

Each semester, we host a variety of events to help welcome you and remind you that IUPUI is the place to be. This fall, Weeks of Welcome events will run during the first two weeks of classes, Aug. 19–31.
