IU South Bend's 80 acres is centered around a large green pedestrian mall and located along the St. Joseph River. When the campus officially opened in the early 1960s, the
campus featured two buildings: Northside Hall and Greenlawn Hall, a former tool and die factory. Growing steadily
over the last 40 years, the campus now consists of 12 buildings. The most recent addition is the 100,000- square-foot Student
Activity Center featuring basketball, volleyball, and racquetball courts, a walking track, a
fitness and wellness center, a café, a
student lounge, and student activity offices.
