Visiting Bloomington

Bring your family to meet ours

When you’re a Hoosier, your family is our family. We hope that you give them a chance to visit you and get to know us.

They’re welcome anytime, of course. But each fall, we devote a weekend to the celebration of parents and family.

Family Weekend

For one special weekend in September, we give your parents and families the cream and crimson treatment.

You get the chance to show off your campus, and to share what you’ve learned about life in Bloomington.

Events include special tours, an IU football game tailgate party, and a special brunch.

It’s always a great time to visit Bloomington

Bloomington is gorgeous no matter what the season. We’re famous for eye-popping displays of fall color and spring blooms. But you’ll find just as much to love while crunching across our snow-covered campus in winter or taking a leisurely stroll through downtown in the summer.
