BVIP Program

You’re very important to us

If you’re the parent or guardian of an Indiana University student, you can take advantage of the Biddle Very Important Parent program, an exclusive membership program that gives you special benefits and perks at the Biddle Hotel throughout your student’s time at IU.

As a BVIP, you get:

  • Access to a dedicated BVIP guest experience associate
  • A complimentary welcome amenity in your room every visit
  • Evening turndown service
  • Invitations to BVIP welcome receptions
  • One weekend stay at the weekday rate (not valid during special events such as football or commencement)
  • One free Sunday stayover
  • Special deals on Sunday brunch at the Tudor Room
  • Early access to room blocks for special events such as football games
  • A guaranteed hotel room for Commencement
  • Exclusive offers and promotions

The membership fee for the BVIP program is $250 per year or $800 for four years.

The BVIP program has been one of the BEST aspects of four years at IU!

The BVIP program is limited to 50 families per graduation year. Currently graduation years 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 are full; however, renewals occur each year in March, and memberships for those years may become available then.

In June 2017, we’ll begin accepting membership applications for families of students graduating in 2021.
