Summer housing is located on the 1st through 3rd floors of Currier Hall from May 15 to August 5, 2017. Most students will live in a double occupancy room with bathrooms down the hall. There are limited single occupancy rooms available. Each student is required to have a meal plan to use in the Iowa Memorial Union (May 15 to  26) and then in Burge Hall (May 27 to August 4).


Summer is an exciting time on campus! There are several construction projects that will directly impact students living in Currier Hall. The Currier main entrance (on Clinton Street) will be demolished and replaced for a more accessible entrance this fall. Over the summer, the South Entrance (facing Burge Hall off of the service drive) will be the primary entrance used by summer school students. Additionally, there will be maintenance on the Currier roof requiring scaffolding on the interior courtyard. Summer students should be prepared for loud noise during the day, and watch for signs directing traffic in and out of the building.


Any University of Iowa student enrolled in 1 credit over the summer is eligible to live in summer housing. You may live with University Housing & Dining for the entire summer even if your course is only 4 weeks long.

Students who are interning at the University of Iowa may be eligible to live with University Housing; they must be admitted as a non-degree seeking student with an Iowa OneCard and university billing account. Please contact the Contracts & Assignments office if you have questions regarding eligibility.

Students with a need for disability or medical accommodations to their room assignment or meal plan should submit a Reasonable Request for Accommodations by May 1, 2017 for consideration. University Housing & Dining will work to meet any accommodation submitted after May 1 as space allows.

Room Assignments

Assignments are made in the order that a student’s application was received and will be subject to availability. Students will be notified in early May of their room assignment, roommate information (if available), and check in and check out dates.

Room Types & Rates

Students will be issued and a contract and are billed on a daily basis for their room.

Short-Term Housing

Any University of Iowa student enrolled in 1 credit hour over the summer is eligible to live in summer housing. Students must complete the summer housing application and will be assigned to a summer living space for a timeframe that corresponds with their course enrollment. Students may request housing for a longer period, if desired.  The last summer move-in date is June 25, 2017.  Please note, University Housing & Dining is unable to provide short-term housing between July and August.  We recommend booking a space at the Iowa House Hotel for any short-term needs.  The Iowa House Hotel is an excellent resource during transitional periods between leases off campus.
