IU's Gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean

The IU Mexico Gateway, located in Mexico City and serving Latin America and the Caribbean allows IU faculty and students to fully immerse themselves in academic activities and partnerships. Our Gateway office, located on UNAM's campus in Mexico City, helps link local institutional partners, alumni, and students with IU, and increases the visibility and impact of our academic and research activities in Latin America and the Caribbean.

We can provide well-equipped meeting, conference, and workshop spaces as well as a range of in-country support services to facilitate international engagement. The IU Mexico Gateway is also a key resource for connecting to IU’s partner institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Since opening in 2018, the IU Mexico Gateway has hosted numerous in-person and virtual events, including academic conferences, workshops, overseas study programs, recruitment, and alumni events.
