@2018 by the Indiana School for the Deaf

Student Life’s primary responsibility is to provide a safe and comfortable living environment for all residential students. Our programs are specifically designed to provide a supportive environment that is free of language barriers, and that provides opportunities for student growth, development, and achievement. The residential hall programs emphasize integration, collaboration, and equality in fostering opportunities and experiences in self-education and self-improvement.


We are committed to providing high-quality, student-centered programs that support the student as a whole.



Students develop best in a challenging and supportive environment where academic and personal development are integral. The Student Life's programs are services based on nine dimensions of this philosophy: cultural, emotional, intellectual, life planning, physical, political, sexual, social, and spiritual.
