Butler's Campus and the City of Indianapolis


The city of Indianapolis encircles Butler's beautiful 290-acre campus. This serene campus area, which is hailed as one of the most attractive in the Midwest, has a formal botanical garden and nature preserve that is surrounded by an historic northside neighborhood, the White River and Central Canal, and the Central Canal Towpath, a 5.23 mile walk/run/bike path that connects Broad Ripple Village to Butler University, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Virginia B. Fairbanks Art and Nature Trail and Riverside Regional Park.

Located six miles from the heart of the city, the campus, which is home to 80 percent of the university's full-time students, offers easy access to downtown. Its urban location allows the Eugene S. Pulliam School of Journalism to offer students a wide range of internship opportunities that are excellent preparation for mass communication careers and graduate school.
