On & Off Campus Housing

The University of Iowa has various different housing options for transfer students. Below are links to more information for on campus (residence halls) and off campus options.

On Campus Housing

  • The purpose of on-campus housing is to provide students with a safe, affordable, and low-stress place to live while pursuing their educational goals
  • Join the Road Less Travelled Living-Learning Community. It is designed specifically for transfer students. Meet fellow Hawkeyes, who are new to the University of Iowa, but not new to the college experience. You’ll have a lot in common already and will make fast friends. Get to know a new campus and all it has to offer with your fellow transfer students.  Also, transfer students are welcome to be in a variety of other LLCs. The LLCs available to you will be indicated in your housing application.
  • If interested apply as soon as you're admitted and submit your housing application. Room assignments are made based on the date that the application, deposit and fee are received by the Contracts & Assignments Office. Included in the materials received with the letter of admission are directions for applying for on-campus housing online through the "Admissions Profile."
