Life at Butler goes way
beyond the classroom.
Let’s face it: you spend most of your time in college outside of class. While a lot of that is spent diving into your studies, there are many other ways at Butler to sharpen your mind, hone your skills, and prepare for the future.
These include health and wellness programs, student organizations, Greek Life, service-learning, and a range of support services that are available to you whenever you need them. Scroll down to learn about campus life at Butler University.
Take a bite out of life, Bulldog-style.
Where will I live? What will I eat? What will I do between classes and assignments? How will I stay healthy in the process? If you’re asking these questions—that’s great. You’re thinking about the right things—and you’ve come to the right place to find answers.
Living in Indy
We’re in the heart of a thriving metropolis. And as a Butler student, you can take every advantage of that. From festivals to the Colts to the Indianapolis 500—and even gondola rides down the Indiana Central Canal—you’ll have one of the Midwest’s most vibrant cities to explore every weekend.
For Butler Bulldogs, Greek Life is more than wearing ancient letters—it’s about serving the community and making a difference in people’s lives. Thirty-one percent of Butler students participate in the system, building lasting relationships, developing skills as leaders, and organizing fundraisers that benefit local nonprofits.
Butler prides itself on being a safe campus where everyone looks out for one another. Our Department of Public Safety is committed to keeping it that way by providing emergency response, crime prevention programs, transportation services, and more to make our environment safer for all.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Being comfortable and your authentic self is essential toward your Butler experience. A key proponent of diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus is the Efroymson Diversity Center. It is a space made for all students and houses multiple student-run organizations promoting social and cultural autonomy.
