Founded in 1902, the University of Indianapolis (UIndy) is a private, comprehensive, diverse university affiliated with the United Methodist Church. The University prides itself on its personal attention, small class sizes, and faculty-student interaction. Enrolling more than 5,400 students, UIndy’s campus of nearly seventy acres is located five miles from downtown Indianapolis.

Undergraduate enrollment at our Indianapolis campus is approximately 4000 students with partner campuses in China (Ningbo Institute of Technology and Zhejiang Yuexiu University of Foreign Languages). Some distinctive features of our university include: nationally recognized graduate programs in Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy; NCAA Division II Athletics programs, several of which are nationally ranked; a flourishing ecumenical religious community that offers resources for many faiths but with an emphasis on the Christian tradition given the University’s Wesleyan roots; a campus that embraces diversity despite its location in a relatively homogeneous part of the United States; a campus that is growing increasingly diverse and more selective while at the same time ensuring it does not undermine efforts to attract 1st generation college students.
