Carson Heights is a neighborhood on the south side of Indianapolis. While the boundaries of the neighborhood are not clearly defined, it is usually thought to be bounded by Troy Avenue to the north, Hannah Avenue to the south, and centered on Carson Avenue. Carson Heights is southeast of Garfield Park.

Some pre-war housing stock exists in Carson Heights, but over half of housing units were built in the 1940s and 1950s. The neighborhood is home to the University of Indianapolis, and therefore a large share of its population is between 20 and 24 years old. Carson Heights also has a relatively high Latino population. One-fifth of residents are Latino with Mexico and El Salvador being the most common countries of origin.
