A classic college town
Bloomington offers the best small-town atmosphere while not sacrificing the amenities of big city living—you can find international grocery stores, restaurants with cuisine from around the world, and ethnic festivals in our city. You’ll also find our campus and the surrounding community to be a fun and diverse place where higher education, local establishments, and the city population combine to create one of the best college towns in the U.S.
A diverse and inclusive atmosphere
We’re committed to promoting an atmosphere of equity and inclusion on our campus, taking a proactive stance on preventing bias incidents through education, awareness, and a culture of honesty and trust. We’ve provided a set of resources to help our international students understand the context of current events in the U.S. and what IU Bloomington is doing to make the campus safe and welcoming.
A safe environment for all
The IU Bloomington campus and local community prioritize working to keep students safe. Our dedicated Indiana University Police Department (IUPD) and The Guardian app help maintain safety on campus by providing resources to students that connect them with tools to keep themselves and others safe. We also work to provide safety measures for pedestrians on campus, local weather events, and emergencies.
