A message to our residents

As we begin the spring semester, we want to let you know we’re facing challenges with the supply chain as well as staffing. The beginning of the semester will likely be challenging because of this. It is possible that we may have to change center desk hours and services as well as staff support. We will announce service changes through signage at your residence hall and on our social accounts.

Masks continue to be required in all indoor public spaces on campus. This includes at the center desks, when you are riding in elevators, and in common areas on your floor. You will need to wear a mask in these and other indoor public spaces to help protect other residents and our staff.

Please be patient with our staff. Our staff members are giving their all to provide you with the best possible service. Many issues are out of their control.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

From the moment I first set foot on IU's campus, I knew this was where I needed to be. Since moving into my residence hall, I've made so many new friends and have grown immensely as an individual.
