Rose House is home to Lutheran Campus Ministry at IU (ELCA). 

This student centered ministry on the campus of a public university reflects the spirit of the inquiry found on campus.  It is a resource to help make the university feel a little smaller as your child lives into his or her vocation as student.

Rose House offers your child:

  • Space for questions
  • Opportunities to serve
  • Free food and relationships

The staff is here to:

  • Empower and equip students for leadership
  • Counsel and/or refer students struggling with the demands of college

How parents can help

  • Pray for your child as s/he grows in faith.
  • Work with your congregation to stay in contact with your child and others who are away at college.
  • Support Rose House financially.  Click here to find out ways you can provide funds for our ministry at no extra cost to you!

A place for you to belong and to be known.  

A space for you to live into your identity as beloved child of God.

An alum's wish:
"May Rose House be a place that you feel rooted, nurtured, and reminded of God's magnificent love. You are family here, throughout the seasons. Come, grow, and branch out to serve those around you. Join the community, the family tree, all are welcome here."

Lutheran Campus Ministry at IU is a Reconciling in Christ ministry.  LCM-IU, through its Affirmation of Welcome echoes the apostle Paul's claim that in Christ "there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female" (Galatians 3:28). Christ has made us one. We acknowledge this reconciliation extends to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
