INDOT, University Construction Projects Will Improve S.W. Entrance Traffic Flow

Street In the second quarter of 2014, the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will begin a project to widen Coliseum Boulevard from Paul Shafer Drive to Crescent Avenue, including widening the bridge over the St. Joseph River. This project will also include the milling, repaving, and realignment of traffic lanes to provide a left-hand turn into the southwest campus entrance, which will be widened and realigned to improve traffic flow at that intersection and improve both incoming and outgoing campus traffic flow at the intersection of West Campus Drive and Coliseum Boulevard. Read the entire memo ... 

New Campus Card System Coming
IPFW partnered with Purdue in moving to a more robust one-card campus system which will be capable of functioning as a debit card and door access. Initially the system will replace only current functionality, which is campus identification and copy card. Your current Mastodon card will not need to be replaced unless you want to make personal copies on the copier fleet. Current department copy cards will be replaced prior to this change. The new system should be implemented after the end of spring term. More information will be forthcoming as the transition approaches.
