West Lafayette Time Zone

Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, is on Eastern Time (same time as the East Coast) throughout the year.

Greater Lafayette Indiana is very close to the border of the Eastern and Central time zones, and sometimes campus visitors who are traveling from the Central Time Zone are caught off guard by the time change. So, please plan ahead.
