IU Northwest does not provide housing or living accommodations. We are a commuter campus. All of our students drive or take public transportation to campus each day. If you choose to attend IU Northwest, you will be responsible for securing your own housing or living accommodations. 

After your submitting your application, you will receive and email within 5 business days with instructions to create an ATLAS account where you can upload documents and check on the status of your application. You may upload copies of your official transcripts, diplomas, and certificates for admission consideration; however, you will be required to provide the actual paper documents upon arrival to campus.
