Relocating to Indianapolis

Survival Guide

For those of you who are new to the area, the student-written Survival Guide is a valuable reference for getting settled in Indy. (See sections on "Finding the Basics" and "Food & Social.")


Printing subsidy — Part of the student technology fee at the IUSM–Indy campus is used to offset students’ printing costs. Third and fourth year students receive an allotment of 200 pages each. You can use your Jagtag (student ID) to print for free in the Medical Library and in MS016A.

When your subsidy is almost exhausted, notify Card Services to switch to your own funds. (The switch-over doesn’t happen automatically until you hit zero, and when it does, you could lose printing capability until the next morning.)

Pager Service
