For Parents

The IU Bloomington campus offers all the resources and facilities of a major research university on a beautiful wooded campus with historic limestone buildings. It’s the perfect place to get a taste of college life while taking advantage of top-notch libraries, laboratories, studios, stages, and sports facilities.

All this, in a perfect college town. Bloomington is a cosmopolitan community with a small town feel. With Big Ten sports, a thriving arts community, an array of international restaurants, unique boutiques and galleries, a lively night life, and lots of activities for families and nature enthusiasts, Bloomington has it all.

So, while your kids are taking advantage of our precollege programs, you can find some enrichment activities of your own. Visit the Bloomington Convention and Visitors Bureau to find out what’s going on in town, or find something to do on campus on the IU Bloomington Events Calendar.
