Jordan Avenue from Davis Street to 17th Street was renamed following recommendations of a task force and approvals by the city of Bloomington and the Indiana University Board of Trustees.

All Indiana University office, residential (including housed Greek and student organizations) and department addresses retain the same building numbers and directional designations; only the name of the street is changing, from Jordan Avenue to Eagleson Avenue. The U.S. Postal Service is automatically directing mail as appropriate.

Indiana University offices and departments may contact IU mail services manager Bo Shipley at with questions about addressing and delivery. IU Document Services should be contacted for offices and departments to order new stationery and business cards. Exterior building signs are already being updated, and units are encouraged to update their websites and other electronic media effective immediately.
