Living on campus not only is convenient and affordable, it's a great way to find a home within the university community and make new friends. The university's residence halls vary in size from the 1,000-resident Mayflower to Parklawn with just 98 residents, and in atmospheres from high-rises like Slater and Rienow to the more traditional Iowa architecture of Currier.
Elizabeth Catlett Hall is located on the site of the old Iowa City Water Plant located on Madison Street. Catlett is 12 stories tall and will house 1,049 students when it opens in the fall of 2017. The building will include a new market place, study rooms, lobby/lounge, and laundry.
