Spring 2021 operations in the Division of Student Affairs


IUPUI students, staff and faculty are getting ready to return for the in-person portion of the spring 2021 semester and -- much like the fall semester -- will continue to adhere to several safety enhancements as offices prepare to reopen.

The Division of Student Affairs has worked to alter procedures, guidelines and day-to-day operations to ensure students have the support and access they need while upholding best practices to keep everyone healthy and safe. Below is a breakdown of each unit in the division with helpful information and links that highlight spring plans and operations.
