Returning IUPUI Students

An Ideal Place to Live for IUPUI Students

For those returning to school as “non-traditional” adult students, IUPUI is a great option, allowing balance between school, work, and the pressures of daily life. If you’re enrolling at IUPUI for a postgraduate degree, to finish a degree you started years ago, or to pursue a degree for the first time, River West Flats is the perfect place to live to help you on your academic journey.

Why IUPUI?

IUPUI serves an important need for adult students who work, have families, or are returning to school mid-career. Because it isn’t a traditional residential four-year college, IUPUI offers the flexibility and convenience that adult students need. With a large campus and diverse student body, students of all ages and stages of life can find the academic path that’s best for their life and needs. 

Close and Convenient

For those students who prefer to live off-campus but still close enough for convenience, River West Flats is the ideal location for a convenient and comfortable apartment home. Our community is located just two miles from IUPUI, making trips into downtown to get to class quick and easy.

An Easy Commute

At River West Flats, you have ample options for your commute to class. For those who prefer to drive in, we have free off-street parking, and many IUPUI academic buildings have parking lots, so you don’t have to walk far to class once you’re on campus. If you don’t have a car or prefer not to drive in, River West Flats offers residents a complimentary shuttle to bring you to a number of downtown locations, including campus. 

Nearby Collaborative Space

The 16 Tech Innovation District downtown offers a 24-hour coworking space and innovation center that meets the needs of returning students. In case you needed more convincing, there’s also an artisan marketplace, opening soon, that offers a food hall, European-style marketplace, event space, and communal seating, so you can feed your body while you feed your mind. 

Onsite Amenities

River West Flats isn’t just an ideal location due to our convenient location; we also provide residents with amenities that make life, work, school, and downtime more convenient and fun! Access to high-speed internet means you can get your work done from the comfort of home or in our business center or resident lounge. 


Onsite laundry facilities and a 24-hour fitness center allow you to get everything done without inconvenient travel or interruptions to your schedule. And for the canine members of your household, our Bark Park keeps your pup exercised, socialized, and happy! When schoolwork is done, our resort-style pool and ample green spaces give you every opportunity to kick back and relax without having to get in the car. 


Returning students, visiting lecturers, and professors and staff alike will find so much to love about living at River West Flats. Call us at (317) 743-2758 to schedule your in-person or virtual visit. Come see what next-level student housing can look like!
