Plan a visit

Schedule a visit

Ask any Hamilton Lugar School student, and they'll tell you: at HLS, the only thing more contagious than passion is community.

You feel it the moment you step on campus.
You know it the moment you walk through our doors.

If you're interested in joining the HLS family, we invite you to explore our programs and experience our community from the comfort of your home!

Indiana University's response to the Coronavirus

As a result of the necessary discouragement of visitors to campus, the Office of Admissions has canceled all visits and events through July 31, 2020. If you are scheduled to visit campus during this time, you will be notified that your visit is canceled and you will have the opportunity to reschedule for a later date. Until you are able to join us on campus, we invite you to continue your exploration of IU and engagement with our campus community in other ways! Review the information below to learn more about academic opportunities, our beautiful campus, and more.
