Rates, Contracts & Forms
Living on campus provides residents the convenience of paying one bill for your room and board. Heat, electricity, water, cable TV, internet, garbage are all included in your room and meal plan assessment. Room rates are based on amenities in each room, with additional costs for air conditioning, shared/private bathroom, and/or shared kitchen. Rates cover the academic year, including Thanksgiving and Spring Break. Students are assessed an additional charge (on their university bill) if they wish to stay over the break between fall and spring semesters.
Living on campus also comes with the expectation that students are mature enough to live in an environment where they are a contributing member of the larger residence hall community. Students have rights and responsibilities as members of the residence hall community, and these are outlined in the terms and conditions they acknowledged when applying for housing. Students who violate policies that negatively impact the community can be removed from the residence halls or suspended from the university.
If a student has special medical or psychological conditions that may impact their placement or experience in the residence halls, you should inform us of that condition and its impact on your housing. It may be an accommodation or a request to be released from your contractual obligations. Forms to request accommodations or contract release are available; these requests must be submitted to Contract & Assignments. If you are no longer attending the University of Iowa, a cancellation form is available (See E-forms below).
