Two top universities on one campus in a major U.S. city

Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) is a public, urban research institution that combines the strengths of Indiana University (IU) and Purdue University.

You get the best of these two universities. You can choose among more than 140 IU degree programs and more than 80 Purdue degree programs, and you will graduate with a respected IU or Purdue degree.
