The Bracken House is the residence of the President of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. The home is located just a few blocks west of the Ball State University campus in the historic neighborhood of Westwood. Many receptions, dinners, and other official university events are hosted at the home.

The home is built in the Georgian Revival style. It was donated to Ball State by Alexander and Rosemary (Ball) Bracken. In the 1990s the University refurbished the home with help from the original architect, Walter Scholer & Associates, from Lafayette, Indiana.
