Indiana University has two core campuses, five regional campuses, and two regional centers under the administration of IUPUI.
- Indiana University Bloomington (IU Bloomington) is the flagship campus of Indiana University. The Bloomington campus is home to numerous premier Indiana University schools, including the College of Arts and Sciences, the Jacobs School of Music, an extension of the Indiana University School of Medicine, the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering, which includes the former School of Library and Information Science (now Department of Library and Information Science), School of Optometry, the O'Neil School of Public and Environmental Affairs, the Maurer School of Law, the School of Education, and the Kelley School of Business.
- Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), a partnership between Indiana University and Purdue University, is Indiana's urban research and academic health sciences campus. Located just west of downtown Indianapolis, it is the central location of several Indiana University schools, including the primary campus of the School of Medicine, the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology, the School of Informatics and Computing, the School of Dentistry, the Kelley School of Business, the School of Nursing, the O'Neil School of Public and Environmental Affairs, the School of Social Work, the Herron School of Art and Design, the world's first School of Philanthropy, and the Robert H. McKinney School of Law. On August 12, 2022, the boards of trustees of both Purdue and IU announced that IUPUI will split into two separate universities, with completion of the split to be finished by the fall 2024 semester.
- Indiana University East (IU East) established 1971, located in Richmond.
- Indiana University Kokomo (IU Kokomo) established 1945, located in Kokomo.
- Indiana University Northwest (IU Northwest) established 1963, located in Gary.
- Indiana University South Bend (IU South Bend) established 1922, located in South Bend.
- Indiana University Southeast (IU Southeast or IUS) established 1941, located in New Albany.
Finally, there are two regional campuses under the administration of IUPUI:
- Indiana University–Purdue University Columbus (IUPUC) established 1970, located in Columbus. After IUPUI splits in 2024, IUPUC will remain a joint campus, with the mechanical engineering program to be administered through Purdue and all other academic programs to be administered through the new IU Indianapolis.
- Indiana University Fort Wayne (IU Fort Wayne) established 2018, located in Fort Wayne. It was established after the dissolution of the former entity Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW), which had been an extension similar to that of IUPUI under the administration of Purdue University. IU Fort Wayne took over IPFW's academic programs in health sciences, with all other IPFW academic programs taken over by the new entity, Purdue University Fort Wayne (PFW).
The School of Medicine and the School of Social Work have degree programs running across multiple IU campuses. Kelley School of Business, the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering, the O'Neil School of Public and Environmental Affairs, and the School of Education have degree programs at both the Indiana University Bloomington (IU Bloomington) and Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) campuses. The School of Nursing has degree programs at the IUB, IUPUI, and IU Fort Wayne campuses. The Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health has degree programs at the IUPUI and IU Fort Wayne campuses.
According to the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO), the value of the endowment of the Indiana University and affiliated foundations in 2016 is over $1.986 billion. The annual budget across all campuses totals over $3 Billion.
The Indiana University Research and Technology Corporation (IURTC) is a not-for-profit agency that assists IU faculty and researchers in realizing the commercial potential of their discoveries. Since 1997, university clients have been responsible for more than 1,800 inventions, nearly 500 patents, and 38 start-up companies.
In fiscal year 2016, the IURTC was issued 53 U.S. patents and 112 global patents.

Indiana University has three medals to recognize individuals.
- The University Medal, the only IU medal that requires approval from the Board of Trustees, was created in 1982 by then IU President John W. Ryan and is the highest award bestowed by the University. It honors individuals for singular or noteworthy contributions, including service to the university and achievement in arts, letters, science, and law. The first recipient was Thomas T. Solley, former director of the IU Art Museum.
- Indiana University President's Medal for Excellence honors individuals for distinction in public service, service to Indiana University, achievement in a profession, and/or extraordinary merit and achievement in the arts, humanities, science, education, and industry. The first recipients were member of the Beaux Arts Trio on September 20, 1985.
- Thomas Hart Benton Mural Medallion "recognizes individuals who are shining examples of the values of IU and the universal academic community." President Ryan was the first to award this honor. It was first awarded to the president of Nanjing University on July 21, 1986. It honors individuals for distinction in public office or service, a significant relationship to Indiana University or Indiana, significant service to IU programs, students, or faculty, significant contribution to research or support for research.
