Picture yourself at IUPUC
It may be small, but IUPUC makes a big impression with its warm, welcoming atmosphere, art-filled campus grounds, and strong focus on personal attention and support. Its two dedicated buildings are housed alongside Purdue Polytechnic and Ivy Tech campuses on a former airport property at the edge of Columbus, now dotted with lush green spaces, modern sculptures, and architectural shared buildings. While all students live off campus, there is cost-efficient, student-only housing available within walking distance if you want to live close by.
IUPUC is known for its family-like community, with an average class size of 15 students and faculty who know students’ names and take an active role in their success. Research opportunities, internship programs, and study abroad options are readily available and easy to explore, along with a small but active list of student organizations and community service programs.

I chose to apply to IUPUC because it offered me the option to pursue a career and study close to home. Now I’m not scared of the future. Instead I look forward to it and the many opportunities it will bring.

Active student organizations and events
Whether you love basketball, want to learn sign language, or have a passion for social activism, you’ll find a range of opportunities to get involved and build your community—as well as one-on-one support for starting your own club or organization if you don’t find what you’re looking for. Annual events like the Big Red Blowout, Tent City, and Homecoming bring even more students together to explore activities, meet new friends, and feel the Crimson Pride come to life.

A focus on student success
Pursuing a degree is an exciting but challenging journey. At IUPUC, student support and guidance is built into the college experience from day one, including one-on-one faculty and peer mentorships, free tutoring through the Academic Resource Center, and Adaptive Education Services and counseling services for students with physical, mental, or other challenges. Career services help to connect students with internships and jobs in the Columbus area, and strong ties to community businesses and organizations offer more resources for educational support and career development.
