IPFW certificate and degree programs make use of an extensive array of on-campus physical facilities that includes:

  • Nearly 100 classrooms, nearly all of which include network connections for Internet access, television, and telephones, with new classrooms opening in Student Housing for fall semester 2010.

  • Specialized laboratory, clinical, studio, and performance facilities for the sciences (biology, chemistry, communication sciences and disorders, geosciences, mathematics, physics, psychology), humanities and social sciences (anthropology, counseling, education, international languages), computer science, engineering, engineering technology, interior design, health sciences (dental education and nursing programs), and the visual and performing arts (fine arts, music, theatre, and visual communication and design).

  • Library facilities that include open stack areas for books, serials, and other collections, as well as student computer labs, individual and group study areas, and a 24-hour study, computer, and vending area. Library services also include computer-based access to a wide range of materials, including IPFW course reserves.

  • Several open-access student computer laboratories and an advanced multimedia laboratory, as well as wireless access to the campus network from nearly all campus areas.

  • Access to specialized research facilities when sponsored by an IPFW faculty member.

Support facilities include faculty offices and related areas, student lounges, student organization and student newspaper spaces, and the IPFW Bookstore. The Gates Sports Center provides facilities and outdoor areas for student use, intramural sports, and intercollegiate athletics.

Students enrolled in clinical, internship, professional experience and similar courses also make use of facilities at various off-campus locations.

IPFW off-campus courses are also held at the IPFW Warsaw Center and several additional locations in northeast Indiana. Course offerings at these locations are limited to those suitable to the facilities available at these locations.
