|Parking:||If you don’t yet have your parking permit, please visit the Parking Services website and order today!

Do you have questions about where to park on campus? Check out Where Can I Park? for a list of available permit types and where you may park with that permit. And check our Facebook & Twitter feeds for updated available parking during the first two weeks of school.|

|eTexts:||Some classes at IUPUI are being taught with the entire class accessing electronic textbooks eTexts.
While the Barnes and Noble @ IUPUI Bookstore has many textbooks available in electronic versions, the IU eText initiative is an option for faculty who prefer to make an eTextbook mandatory and available to everyone enrolled in the class. Notations and comments can then be shared electronically. In addition, there are specific course fees associated with these classes. If you are enrolled in a class with an eText, more information is available here.

IMPORTANT CAMPUS POLICIES
- Tobacco Free IUPUI and Indiana's new Smoke-Free-Air Law
IUPUI is a Tobacco Free Campus. There is no smoking or use of any tobacco products on the IUPUI campus. Students violating this IUPUI and Indiana University policy will be referred to the IUPUI Office of The Dean of Students for appropriate administrative action.
In addition, as of July 1, 2012, Indiana State Law prohibits smoking in any IUPUI-owned or IUPUI-leased facility or within 8 feet of any entrance to those facilities. (Ind. Code 7.1-5-12). Please be aware that the entrances to many of our campus buildings are defined to include areas such as stairways, balconies, and awnings. IU Police has been charged with issuing citations ($150) to individuals who violate the Indiana State Law.
To assist those who want to quit smoking we have compiled a list of cessation resources available via the Tobacco Free IUPUI website, www.smokefree.iupui.edu
Students wishing to join the tobacco free educational effort for IUPUI should contact the campus Co-Chairs whose contact information can be found in the (Letter from the Tobacco-Free IUPUI Co-Chairs).
