As part of HILT’s commitment to our participants, we encourage all attendees to be aware of accessibility and inclusion. To assist with that awareness, below are details on accessibility related to all official locations we will be using for the event. Accessibility information for the Cultural Heritage excursions are available on that specific page.

If you have specific accessibility needs, please do not hesitate to contact us at or via DM on twitter @HILT_DH.


The campus maintains a dynamic accessibility map that allows users to map all handicapped-accessible entrances.

University Tower

University Tower includes Tower Dining, all dormitory housing for HILT2019, and the HILT Social Reception. It is located at 911 W North St, Indianapolis, IN 46202-3104. It is the building situated at the corner of Michigan and University that is physically attached to Hine Hall (to its East). The building is U-shaped so if you enter from Hine Hall you can proceed all the way around the U to get to Tower Dining.

Due to construction in the central courtyard between University Tower and Hine Hall, all participants are encouraged to enter through the Southeast entrance at corner of Michigan and University. This is also the entrance closest to Tower Dining and the dormitory entrance.

Elevators to the second floor where the Social Reception will be held are available in the central connector between University Tower (the left building) and Hine Hall (the right building). Elevators to the dormitory housing are located in the University Hall lobby near the Dormitory Housing & Residence Life desk. The housing desk can provide assistance for those with accessibility needs related to moving luggage.

If you need assistance at meal times, staff within Tower Dining can assist in navigating the buffet.

Handicap-accessible parking is available in the parking garage located on North Street with elevators depositing you directly into the University Tower lobby.

University Library

All classes, coffee events, registration, and the HILT Community Ignite will take place in the University Library, which located at 755 W Michigan St, Indianapolis , IN 46202-5195. Situated on the central quad, the primary entrance to the Library is via the main entrance on the northside of the building.

Elevators to the basement (where the Lilly Auditorium is located) and all floors are located in the center of the building. We apologize that the elevators are notoriously slow moving between floors.

If you need assistance navigating your classroom or at coffee breaks, please do not hesitate to ask Jen or Trevor for assistance.

Handicap-accessible parking is available directly next to the University Library via the New York Street entrance. All other parking is available in the North Street Garage. Please note that the North Street garage is connected via tunnels to both University Tower and University Library via Hine Hall and the SPEA building, respectively.

Course Materials

Course materials will be provided by instructors to all students for their personal use. We encourage anyone who needs a physical copy of their materials to notify their instructor so a printed packet can be prepared prior to the class.
