2020-21 Housing for Current Students

We’re excited to announce that we have added The Avenue (formerly Smallwood) to our list of offerings for current IU students. We believe combining the convenient features of on-campus housing that students and parents enjoy with a great downtown location, provides a unique opportunity for our students to have the ultimate college housing experience in Bloomington. 

Online sign up for The Avenue, Union Street Center, and other limited on-campus locations reopens at 12 noon on January 13, 2020 and continues through 5 p.m. on March 13.

From March 23 – May 1, current students may come to the assignment office located in the Nelson Administration Building at 801 N. Jordan Ave. Hours are Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

After May 1 applications must be submitted online through the New Student Housing Application.
