IPFW Student Housing is a community in and of itself on campus, offering students apartment-style living with a variety of floor plans with private bedrooms. Student Housing allows for quick, easy access to the main campus and provides an active student atmosphere and network.

Student Life oversees all of the student organizations on campus, including the Student Theatre Organization.

IPFW Multicultural Services is a support system for African American, Hispanic, Native American, International, Asian American, and first generation non-traditional college students. Several student organizations are offered through Multicultural Services, as well as programs, a newsletter, and scholarships. 

The University Student E-Mail Directory is an excellent way to contact other students. All you need to know is the first two letters of a person’s last name to find their email address, if the person has chosen to be listed.
