Student Life

Make the most of your community

The Hoosier Link program offers more than a guaranteed transfer to IU. It gives you an opportunity to get involved on two campuses. You'll be ahead of other IU transfer students by getting involved and exploring the IU campus from the start.

You have a few options when it comes to transportation. If you live on campus or off campus in the Ivy Tech Community College Bloomington service area, you can either drive to the Ivy Tech campus or ride public buses (IU campus bus, Bloomington Transit, and Rural Transit) to commute to Ivy Tech. If you opt to bring a vehicle to campus, IU parking permits are available for purchase around the residence hall or in the lots by Assembly Hall. More information about IU parking will be given to on-campus students following orientation. Parking on the Ivy Tech campus is free.

For on-campus students

As an on-campus Hoosier Link student, you have opportunities to get involved on both the Ivy Tech and Indiana University campuses. In addition to the resources above, we encourage you to explore your opportunities at IU through the Office of Student Life.

Some opportunities, such as the Marching Hundred and cheerleading, are only available to enrolled IU Bloomington students. Greek life is an opportunity for students once they successfully transfer to Indiana University.

On-campus students are required to live in the Hoosier Link Thematic Community in Eigenmann Hall for the full academic year. This Thematic Community provides you with outstanding academic, personal, and social enrichment opportunities.

Hoosier Link students can only live with other Hoosier Link students and may not request a roommate who is a student admitted to IU. In addition to housing, you will select a meal plan offered by IU Residential Programs and Services. The meal plan allows you to eat in a variety of facilities on the IU campus; however, meals on the Ivy Tech campus are not covered under the IU meal plan.
