The Bryan House is the traditional home of the president of Indiana University (IU) in the center of the Bloomington campus of the university. It is named in honor of William Lowe Bryan, who served as Indiana University's tenth president from 1902 to 1937. President Bryan's wife Charlotte oversaw the design and construction of the home.

Due to its prominence on campus the Bryan House has been a focal point for university gatherings and protests. Following the firing of legendary men's basketball coach Bobby Knight students congregated at the house to protest President Myles Brand's decision.
