Facilities & Technology
Technology education and research cannot happen without state-of-the-art facilities. Indiana University Bloomington and the School of Informatics and Computing have made a substantial investment to provide students and faculty with the infrastructure, computing resources, and collaborative space to facilitate learning and inspire discovery.
From our high-tech labs and classrooms to our inviting collaboration and research spaces, we have a place for you here.
Currently, the School of Informatics and Computing is housed in three buildings on the Bloomington campus. Lindley Hall, a four-story complex of classrooms, labs, and offices, is home to our computer science faculty and students. Lindley Hall is one of the original buildings that make up IU’s scenic “Old Crescent.”
The recently renovated Informatics East and Informatics West buildings form a 60,000-square-foot complex of informatics classrooms and offices, including the Informatics Learn Lab, a space filled with the latest in modern classroom technology to facilitate interactive and collaborative learning.
In fall 2010, a new 12,000-square foot building will connect the two spaces. The new building will feature a three-story open-plan design and some of the most cutting-edge classroom and office space on campus. It will also include a fully wired courtyard, where students can plug in and power up between classes.
IU Bloomington is home to the Big Red supercomputer and was recently named the nation’s “most wired” public university by PC Magazine. We also just opened the 30,000-square-foot IU Data Center to protect our computing and networking resources.

School-Affiliated Research Centers and Groups
In addition to the numerous research centers and groups that our faculty is affiliated with here in Bloomington, the Informatics Research Institute is a university center that fosters research spanning IU Bloomington and IUPUI.
IU Research Facilities
Pervasive Technology Institute is an interdisciplinary think tank that brings together researchers and technologists from the School of Informatics and Computing, the Maurer School of Law, University Information Technology Services, and the former Pervasive Technology Labs. PTI houses three research centers:
PTI is one of the first tenants of the new IU Bloomington Innovation Center, a 40,000-square-facility that provides lab and office space for life science and information technology start-ups.
