Housing and Travel

After you have chosen your Outreach Session, you will need to get to Bloomington. When making your travel arrangements remember that Indiana is on Eastern Standard Time. We ask that you inform us of your travel plans when completing the Outreach Registration form, but we recognize that not all plans are finalized at that time. If you have updates or changes in your itinerary, email these details to iuspa@indiana.edu.

The Indianapolis International Airport is approximately 45 miles from IU-Bloomington. There are two airport shuttles that will bring you conveniently to and from Bloomington during your stay.

  • The Bloomington Shuttle is $18 one way and departs from the airport every two hours, starting at 6:40 a.m. with the last departure at 10:40 p.m. The shuttle leaves the Indianapolis Airport Ground Transportation Center located near the baggage claim and can drop you off at the Indiana Memorial Union (IMU) or at Willkie Residence Center, across from the IU School of Education. For more information about the Bloomington Shuttle, contact (812) 332-6004 or http://www.bloomingtonshuttle.com. If staying on campus, we recommend getting off at Willkie Residence Center.
  • The Star of America shuttle is $15 one way (if purchased online) and departs from the airport every two hours, starting at 6:20 a.m. with the last departure ending at 10:20 p.m. The shuttle leaves the Indianapolis Airport Ground Transportation Center located near the baggage claim and can drop you off at the Indiana Memorial Union (IMU), Eigenmann Residence Center, or Read Residence Center, next to the IU School of Education. For more information about the Star of America, contact (812) 876-7851 or http://www.soashuttle.com. If staying on campus, we recommend getting off at Eigenmann Residence Center.
