What is LUX on Capitol?

It’s a high-quality Indianapolis community designed especially with Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis students in mind. LUX features a variety of spacious, furnished loft-style apartments and a full set of community features such as a luxury clubhouse, fitness center and pool, all just three blocks from the IUPUI campus.

Is LUX part of IUPUI?

No. LUX is a privately owned and professionally managed community. Click here for more information about the management and ownership.

Can I live with friends, or can you match me with roommates?

You can select your roommate(s), or you can apply on your own and we can match you with other students. Applicants answer a short list of lifestyle questions to help in the matching process.

What are per-person contracts?

Instead of requiring all roommates to sign a joint lease, each person at LUX has their own individual contract, with one person per bedroom. This means you are only responsible for paying for yourself — not your roommates. Even if a roommate moves out or other bedrooms in your apartment are empty, you only pay the rate for your bedroom.

What is included in the rate?

Each resident at LUX pays a flat rate that includes:

  • Furnishings
  • High-speed Internet
  • Trash removal
  • In-unit laundry
  • Community features – fitness center, pool, etc.

What size are the apartments?

The spacious accommodations at LUX range from studios to 4-bedroom lofts, each with a private bathroom for every bedroom.

Are the apartments furnished?

Yes, all apartments at LUX have a furniture package that includes a full-size bed, dresser, desk and chair in each bedroom, plus counter stools, a sofa, coffee table and entertainment stand and 40-inch TV in each living room. To see a sample of the furniture and other finishes, please visit our virtual tour that can be viewed here.

When do the contracts start and end?

The standard term is August 16, 2024 to July 25, 2025, with payments made in 12 equal installments. Limited alternate dates are available; please inquire with our staff. Click here for a sample agreement.

Is a co-signer or financial guaranty required?

Within 7 days after a Housing Agreement is signed, each resident is required to do one of two things: provide a qualifying guarantor (often a parent), or pre-pay the final 2 installments.

Can I pay by credit card?

Yes. Residents can pay online 24 hours per day, by credit card or ACH electronic checking. LUX also offers automatic payment by either credit card or checking account — just fill out one page, one time and payments will be made automatically. Convenience fees apply for credit card and debit card payments.

Will my financial aid cover charges at LUX?

Your living costs at LUX can be covered by financial aid, just like on-campus housing. Any available financial aid funds, after university charges are satisfied, are released to the student for non-institutional expenses, such as off-campus housing. These funds can be used to pay charges at LUX. Normal payment deadlines will continue to apply.

Is LUX open to non-students?

Nearly all the residents at LUX are students at IUPUI or UIndy and the per-person contracts are also designed with students in mind. Residents/families with children are welcome. There is no extra cost for minor children in the care of adult residents, other than regular charges for each bedroom space selected by the resident. A minor occupying a bedroom space rented by a parent, guardian or person with legal custody is not considered a breach of the Housing Agreement or a violation of the rules. LUX is an Equal Opportunity housing provider and welcomes applications from non-students. In order to match student roommates in shared apartments, we will request roommate consent for any non-student occupants.

What kind of safety and security are provided?

LUX has a monitored fire sprinkler system, plus electronic locks and individually locking bedroom doors. Community courtesy patrols are provided at select times. Management staff are also available 24×7 and can be reached by a 24-hour phone number.

What are the policies on pets, smoking and guests?

LUX is a no-pets community. The community is smoke-free in all indoor and adjacent areas. Guests are welcome at all times, subject to the consent of roommates and security considerations. Overnight guests are welcome, with limits on the number of days and guests.

Can I park my vehicle at LUX?

LUX offers secured, covered parking in our on-site parking garage for an additional charge.

What other transportation options will I have?

LUX is a 10-minute walk from IUPUI, and just steps from all the attractions of downtown Indianapolis. Three IndyGo bus routes stop just across the street. The University of Indianapolis is also just a 15-minute drive away.

Can I see a model apartment?

Although we do not currently have a model apartment, we offer a virtual tour that can be viewed here. You can also request an appointment for a personal tour, or just stop by to see us and we’ll be happy to show you the community.
