Deadline nears for on-campus students to reapply for housing
Students currently living in the residence halls have the option to reapply for the 2015–16 school year. All residents should have received an email in January from University Housing & Dining with full details about the process, including their specific date and time to select a room. Room selection begins on Tuesday, Feb. 17, and the deadline for returning residents to pick their room is Friday, Feb. 27.
All students who live with University Housing & Dining will participate in a living-learning community (LLC), and Hawks Up is the primary LLC for returning residents. Hawks Up will be in several apartment-style locations popular among returning students: Bloomington House, Centerstone, Dubuque House, Mayflower, and Parklawn. There also will be traditional residence hall rooms available. To view the more than 30 living-learning communities returning residents may participate in, see housing.uiowa.edu/ living-learning-communities.
Students who select a room without a university- provided kitchen will be required to choose a meal plan—either the Black or Gold plan. If a student selects a room with a kitchen and would like a meal plan, the Hawkeye plan is an option. All residence hall contracts come with $200 Hawkeye Dollars ($100 per semester) that can be used in Burge and Hillcrest Market Places, campus convenience stores, and cafés, as well as in residence hall vending machines and washers and dryers.
Room and board rates for the 2015–16 academic year have not been approved by the Iowa Board of Regents. For additional information about on-campus housing, including proposed rates, visit housing.uiowa.edu.
