Central Neighborhood


You can’t miss Collins, the handsome Gothic-style quad on Woodlawn Ave., just two blocks north of the Indiana Memorial Union (IMU), across from the athletic fields. Some choose Collins for its legendary student community, based in the Collins Living-Learning Center, to which many residents belong. The picturesque library in the rafters, the Cheshire Café not far from the wood-paneled dining hall, and more arts facilities than you can imagine are just some of the perks of life here. You’ll see why many students stay in Collins all four years, and proudly call themselves “Collinsites” forever.

Heating and Cooling

These buildings are not air-conditioned and have operable windows.

If you have a medical need for an air conditioner, you need to request the Medical Verification Form and then complete it with your physician. Medical Verification Forms should be returned to our offices or your center desk by Friday, September 11.

If your request is approved, we will email you a confirmation. RPS will provide a window air conditioning unit that meets the necessary specifications upon confirmation of your request. A non-refundable $400 fee for installation, maintenance, removal, and its additional electrical usage will be charged to the bursar account of the student who requests installation. This will be billed at a rate of $200 each semester, fall and spring. We are unable to split the fee between roommates. AC units are provided by RPS and will be inspected up to twice monthly.

If an AC unit is installed in your room at the time of move-in, you will still need to submit a Medical Verification Form. Installed AC units will be removed the week of September 14 if no medical need has been documented.
