If you want the convenience and connection that on-campus living offers, but you want to live in a more independent environment, then you should consider an apartment in Frederiksen Court, Schilletter & University Village, Legacy Tower or Maricopa at The Ridge.
In order to be eligible to live in a Department of Residence apartment, you must be at least 19 years old or in your second year at Iowa State.
Meal plans are encouraged, but not required in our apartment communities.
