About UIndy

Browse Section

The University of Indianapolis, popularly known as UIndy, is a private, comprehensive and diverse institution of higher education located on nearly 50 acres just minutes from downtown Indianapolis.

Affiliated with the United Methodist Church, UIndy is distinguished by highly respected undergraduate programs in the health sciences, teacher education and communications, nationally ranked graduate programs, and Centers of Excellence focusing on aging studies and education reform. Personal attention, small, interactive classes, and flexible programming are the rule rather than the exception.

Founded in 1902, UIndy is home to 5,400 undergraduate and graduate students.

UIndy's 5-year, $50M development plan

Following 18 months of strategic planning, UIndy's Board of Trustees approved a 5-year, $50 million development plan. Highlights include building a four-story health science center, renovating Krannert Memorial Library, replacing Campus Apartments with more modern facilities, upgrading and expanding science labs, and adding men's and women's lacrosse teams. Many of these projects are well underway.
