Morgan Glasser

"All of my professors made sure that I was learning. They really cared that, you know, we had the information we needed to go forth. And they kind of put this beautiful `bow tie on us, and they're ready to send us out into this world and really make a difference."

Life at IUP
Join your favorite clubs, go to shows and concerts on campus, read on a blanket in the Oak Grove, cheer on the Hawks teams, or walk to restaurants and coffee shops in downtown Indiana. There's so much to love about life at IUP!

Students in the Oak Grove

"Multiple visits to other colleges made it hard to choose at first, but as soon as I toured on campus and saw the students here, I just sort of knew this is where I wanted to go. There is something really inviting about IUP."

Housing and Dining
Our residence halls feature Living-Learning Communities and give you a home right in the heart of campus. For dining, you'll enjoy a variety of delicious options, as well as campus spots for Starbucks, Subway, Einstein Bros. Bagels, and Chick-fil-A.

"A tour is really worth your while. The dorms are more than anyone could expect, and the campus is small and safe. It is the perfect place to be proud of, where you call home for the four or so years after high school."

Visit Campus... From Home

Other than being here in person, it's the best way to see IUP. Tour campus through videos and photographs, with stops at a residence hall, a dining facility, an academic building, the library, the Oak Grove, and more.

1. Accept and pay deposit

2. Activate MyIUP

  • You will receive an email with instructions on how to set up your MyIUP account the day after your deposit is processed. 

3. Set up DUO
