Staying Off-Campus

CAP attendees may choose to stay off campus if they stay with a parent or guardian. Click on "Visiting" in the left menu for a list of accommodations in Bloomington.

Students staying off-campus cannot buy meal cards. If you wish to eat meals with the in-house students you pay with cash or credit card for each meal.

Off-campus CAP students are the responsibility of the established legal guardian. A drop-off and collect time has to be settled in advance with the CAP staff. The agreed drop-off and collect time should be convenient to the CAP daily schedule.

Transportation to the Indiana University campus is the responsibility of the designated legal guardian.

At no time can a CAP student under the age of 18 be dropped on the Indiana University campus and left unattended. The CAP student must be handed-off from the legal guardian to the CAP staff.
