Why should I live on campus?
At the University of Iowa, choosing to live on campus means you’ll gain more than just a place to live. Your on-campus experience is a place to discover, learn and grow. Don’t take our word for it. Did we mention that nearly 93% of first-year students choose to live with us? Here's why:
Connect in community
Living on campus allows you to build connections and make new friends. You'll instantly be connected with the Iowa community and have a unique experience that you can only get while in college.
Support when you need it
It can be hard to adjust to life in college. We make it easier with a residence education team, resident assistants and embedded therapists who are there when you need support.
Live with roommates
A roommate is an essential part of your Iowa experience. This allows you to understand the differences of another person, learn how to get along with others and make the most of living in the residence halls.
Opportunities for personal growth
We believe that community connections are vital to your success. This takes your Iowa experience to the next level by creating opportunities for you to grow and learn from others.
Close to what matters most
We're a Big Ten college town that feels small. Living at Iowa, you'll be closer to classes, on-campus dining, libraries, restaurants, shops and everything the university and Iowa City has to offer.
Invested in your success
Hawk Talks are conversations that allow our team to connect with you on a personal level, discuss ways that you can get involved and help you feel at home on our campus.
