Welcome to the Natatorium, the largest indoor
aquatic facility in the US.
The Natatorium has hosted everything from
high school meets to national meets to Olympic
Michael Phelps qualified for his first Olympic
Games here in 2000 at the age of 15!
The IUPUI Swimming and Diving teams also call
the Natatorium home, with the main pool here
as well as another practice pool.
IUPUI is a Division 1 athletics program in
the Horizon League.
We have 8 men’s teams and 10 women’s teams.
We have basketball, soccer, golf, track and
field, volleyball, tennis, and so many more,
and students can get into all home games for
free with the CrimsonCards.
Our teams are great to go and watch.
The men’s basketball team even plays their
games at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum at the
State Fairgrounds, which is a really cool
Let’s go take a look at where our soccer
teams play in Carroll Stadium.
We’re standing in the middle of Carroll
Stadium, this massive stadium is where our
soccer teams play and the campus often holds
events like Light Up the Night.
The Indy Eleven team also used to play at
Back in 1987 when the PanAm games were hosted
in Indianapolis, Carroll Stadium, along with
the Natatorium, were used as venues for some
of the games.
We also had our softball complex, which is
just to the west of us, built in preparation
for the games.
For students who don’t necessarily want
to be on a D1 team in college, there are tons
of ways to stay fit and have fun on campus.
Let’s go take a look at the campus recreation
facility in the Campus Center.
We’re in the lower level of the Campus Center
right now, standing in the campus recreation
Students living on campus can access this
facility for free, and if you don’t live
on campus there’s a really affordable fee
to get a year membership.
This space is really great if you’ve just
got some time between classes and want to
get a workout in or just take a fitness class.
We also have tons of intramural teams that
you can join for things like dodgeball, sand
volleyball, basketball, and a bunch more.
Ok, next we’re going to take a look at something
a lot of people are concerned about when they
go to college: transportation and safety.
IUPUI helps students quickly and safely travel across campus with the JagLine shuttle service. Explore the other ways IUPUI helps keep students safe and connected.

We’re standing at the JagLine bus stop outside
of the Campus Center.
The JagLine is IUPUI’s campus shuttle service,
free for all students.
There are six routes that connect all of the
main areas of campus.
But, being in downtown Indianapolis, there
are a ton more transportation resources.
The IndyGo goes all throughout downtown Indianapolis,
there are even student discounts for the IndyGo.
The city also just finished the RedLine which
stops just off-campus and connects to the
northern part of the city.
Pacers’ bike share is behind us here.
You can rent a bike to ride across campus
or to ride across the city, same thing with
Bird and Lime scooters.
They all make getting around easy, not that
there’s anything wrong with walking.
Across the street here, you can also see some
of the parking available at IUPUI.
All students are allowed to have cars on campus,
but you do need to have a parking pass in
order to park.
Parking Services oversees all parking and
transportation services on campus.
There are surface lots and garages across
campus, and if you’re living on campus there
are also other parking options.
Now let’s go take a look at some of the
safety features on campus.
The IU police are responsible for keeping
our campus safe.
They have 51 full-time officers as well as
several part-time officers and student cadets.
You can see them all over campus.
They’re always willing to help, even if
it’s just car problems or you get locked
out of a building.
The IU Police Department is housed next to
The campus has over 100 emergency phones and
call boxes across campus.
When you press the button, a blue strobing
light will go off and you’ll immediately
be linked to the IUPUI Public Safety Dispatch
The university is really good about letting
students know what is going on around campus
through IU Notify: they’ll alert students
if there are any immediate dangers.
They can send messages straight to you through
text, email, and phone calls.
There are also a few other great resources
that make me feel really safe on campus.
The Safewalk Program and the RAVE guardian
Both of these resources help you get around
So the Safewalk Program is a service where
you just call a phone number and 24/7, they
will provide an escort to walk you to your
car or across campus, their number is 274-SAFE.
And then the RAVE app is an app that lets
you invite friends and family to join your
network as social guardians.
If you’re walking, you can virtually invite
one of your guardians to walk with you on
The app has a safety feature that will directly
connect you to the IU Police or local 911
in an emergency.
Another big part of safety at IUPUI is the
CrimsonCard, which gives authorized users
access to buildings like campus housing.
Let’s go take a look at some of the options
for campus housing.
