IFS Guide
Intensive Freshman Seminars


All IFS students stay in an on-campus Residence Center during the program, usually with an assigned roommate from their IFS class. A current IU student will live on each floor, helping you to adjust and acting as a resource. As part of your room and board, you'll have meal points to use at the nearest dining hall.

Roommate information will be made available to you on the day of the program check-in. IFS assigns roommates in a way that maximizes the connection between the residence hall and your seminar. Your roommate will most likely be someone from your class, and assigned randomly by gender.
