Our state-of-the-art facilities are designed to enhance research and learning, encourage collaboration, and facilitate innovation and entrepreneurship—exactly what our students and faculty need to shape tomorrow.
Luddy Hall, our inspiring new home
In this natural light–filled building, you’ll find three departments—computer science, information and library science, intelligent systems engineering—plus undergraduate and graduate advising, career services, administration offices, and several high-tech classrooms, labs, and makerspaces.
Luddy Hall opened in 2018. It is named for donor and information technology pioneer Fred Luddy and his family. Luddy founded ServiceNow, which Forbes named the world’s most innovative company in 2018.
The 3D Fabrication and Design Inquiry Labs at Luddy empower you to learn, collaborate, and create through hands-on activities.
Our makerspaces are spread across Luddy’s facilities and give you access to many types of machines and tools. Don’t know how to use the equipment? We offer training and guides to teach you.
Open to all Luddy students and the broader IU community, the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program helps students seize their future and do things that have never been done before.
We support aspiring innovators and entrepreneurs through an incubator, activities, mentoring, scholarships, and more.
