The Hoosier Link Student Experience

Residential Learning Experience

Students are required to live in the residential learning community in McNutt Residence Center with other Hoosier Link students during their first year of program participation. In fact, we are so committed to the residential experience that even Hoosier Link students admitted to IU Bloomington for their spring semester must continue to live in the Hoosier Link Learning Community.

The Hoosier Link learning community is intentionally designed to give students outstanding academic, personal, and social enrichment opportunities. The residence hall staff members who live in the Hoosier Link Learning Community serve as both mentors and resource persons for students. As members of this community, Hoosier Link students have the opportunity to gain leadership experience and get involved. In addition, Hoosier Link students will be expected to attend required programs that take place in the residence halls.

After notification of admission, Hoosier Link students are given access to the IU online housing application.  Hoosier Link students can only live with other Hoosier Link students and may not request a roommate who is a student admitted to IU.  Once the application has been submitted, changes in roommate requests cannot be accommodated.

Campus Life

Hoosier Link students have numerous opportunities to become engaged in the campus life and culture at both IU Bloomington and Ivy Tech. Whether it's through participating in a club and serving as a student ambassador at Ivy Tech, or by being involved in intramurals and attending Broadway shows at IU Bloomington, our students are encouraged to become immersed in the culture of both campuses. The IU Bloomington campus has something for everyone with more than 750 student organizations. Hoosier Link students have access to IU's beINvolved website to explore involvement possibilities. Ivy Tech also has involvement opportunites. Students can learn more about Life at Ivy Tech here.
