Picture yourself at IU South Bend
As the largest regional campus of Indiana University, IU South Bend offers a unique balance of big university resources with a campus setting that still feels small and intimate. Built along the banks of the St. Joseph River, its beautiful, walkable campus features tree-lined pathways, inviting green spaces, and a 600-foot pedestrian bridge over the river to connect the main campus to apartment-style student housing. IU South Bend life is well-rounded and focused on student success, with more than 100 undergrad and graduate degree programs to choose from, highly involved and supportive faculty, and an exciting variety of extracurricular activities and organizations.
The city of South Bend, nationally recognized for its economic development and revitalization efforts, acts as an extension of campus, where partnerships between IU and local organizations and businesses allow students to gain real-world experience through research opportunities, internships, and community involvement. As a thriving college town, South Bend also offers numerous affordable, convenient housing options for students. And because many alumni go on to become leaders and contributors to the South Bend community, there’s a strong sense of IU South Bend pride both on and off campus.
