Rent and Utilities
Our rates are listed per apartment. If you choose to live in an apartment by yourself and don’t want a roommate, you’ll pay the full amount. If you have a roommate, your share of rent will be half of what’s listed. Rent is billed to your Ubill at the beginning of each semester.
All utilities are included except gas. Gas is contracted through Alliant Energy by the resident. Included utilities are: electricity, water, garbage service and DSL internet. If you want wireless internet in your apartment, you will need to bring your own router.
MetroNet is the internet service provider in SUV. Expect speeds up to 1 gigabit. You’ll need to bring a wireless router and connect it if you want wireless internet in your apartment. For more information, click here.
Pets are allowed in specific University Village Apartments! Pet apartment residents pay the pet rate even if they don’t own a pet. If a roommate leaves a shared pet apartment, the apartment will become private until the roommate who stayed finds a new roommate (meaning the remaining roommate pays the full amount). Review our pet policy.
Buildings 121 through 125 and 145 through 163 are pet friendly. All other apartments do not allow pets (other than fish).
Want to live with someone of the opposite gender? You and your roommate will need to make that request to our office in writing (2419 Friley Hall, firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you sign a single contract, you will be placed with a roommate of the same gender as you.
The SUV Community Center has several different amenities that include: the front desk and offices for staff members, a computer lab with printer, large multipurpose room, and a kitchen. Residents can access the building 24/7 and it’s where you’ll enjoy community events!
Parking is available and passes are purchased through the ISU Parking Division.
You can install a washer in your apartment. Or, you can use the laundry center available to the community. Machines accept cards and CyCash for payment.
Enjoy plenty of green space, basketball courts, garden space, fruit trees and hammock poles. And, we have great walking/biking paths that connect to campus and the Ames community trail system.
