IU's Gateway in Berlin

Located in Berlin’s vibrant Kreuzberg neighborhood, the IU Europe Gateway provides the university with a presence in the heart of Europe. Both as a physical space and as a resource hub, the Europe Gateway facilitates a range of academic activities that increase IU’s international visibility and impact. From supporting faculty research workshops to co-organizing study abroad tours or hosting alumni events, the Europe Gateway assists different stakeholders of the IU community to increase their international connections and engagement.

The Europe Gateway also connects IU faculty and students with peers in Europe in a virtual setting/space, through student exchanges that foster collaborative online international and intercultural learning, or scholarly exchanges between faculty on topics of joint interest, like the European Encounters series.

The Europe Gateway’s services include, but are not limited to: establishing and strengthening connections to local partners, event support, guidance with logistics, housing and transportation, and advice on cultural activities.
