IU blends a vibrant university community with a small-town atmosphere to give you a quality of life that’s hard to match. Founded in 1820, IU Bloomington attracts students from around the globe who want a classic college experience: great traditions, a gorgeous campus, international culture, Big Ten sports, and a progressive academic climate.
Bloomington is the quintessential college town: a city of 70,000 with cultural resources and opportunities that rival cities many times its size. From the diverse shops and restaurants of Kirkwood Avenue to the annual Lotus World Music and Arts Festival, it’s easy to see why USA Today named Bloomington one of the top 10 cities for campus culture.
