New in Town

New In Town LLC Icon

Make your living experience a home away from home! Adjusting to a new place can be hard, but you don’t have to do it alone. This community is designed for new out-of-state students. Immerse yourself in the UI Campus and Iowa City area while forming strong friendships. You will have the chance to participate in events that local residents view as essential to your experience at Iowa. This LLC will not be offered for the 2017-18 Academic Year. We recommend the Experience Iowa LLC as an alternative.
