Looking for Iowa State University housing? You’ve come to the right place! Iowa State University accommodation offers students plenty of options with floor plans ranging from a private room in a 2, 3 or 4-bed apartment to a fully private 1BHK. You’ll definitely find your match with Unilodgers. And no matter which student apartment you finally go for, you’re going to be treated to many cool amenities. Think lounge, courtyards, tanning beds, BBQ area, clubhouse, swimming pool, and fire pit. And that’s not even the full list! Ames can be a hot city, especially after April. The on-site swimming pool at your student residence is going to be a total saviour on those days! And for fall, the fire pits should serve you well with barbecued food next to hot grills.
All the Iowa State University apartments are located very close to campus and it's pretty easy to find public transport too. The best part is, all the apartments are within walking distance of the city centre where you’ll find all the best food, great drinks (always!), and plenty to shop and explore around. Go for some retail therapy at Strip Center or Ames Plaza. Take an evening stroll at Reiman Gardens. Mucky Ducky Pub and Applebee’s Grill are student-faves for beers and barbecue. Head to Wasabi Ames and Fuji Japanese Steak House when you’re in the mood for Japanese.
Some of the most recommended Iowa State University apartments are The Foundry - Ames, 23Twenty Lincoln, The Edge Ames, Union on Lincoln Way, Aspen Ames, Stadium View Suites, and Grove at Ames.

Iowa State University is located in Ames, Iowa and it’s the largest university in Iowa. It’s a popular uni with students who want to study design, engineering, education, journalism and mass communication. The uni’s architecture programs are highly ranked in the US too. They have an annual on-campus education and entertainment festival called VEISHEA, named after the uni’s original five institutions - Vet Medicine, Engineering, Industrial Science, Home Economics and Agriculture. The uni is well inclined towards sports too, considering the long list of athletes that have graduated from here. Many bigshots have studied here too. Some popular names include iconic pilot Clarence Chamberlin, astronaut Clayton Anderson, botanist George Washington Carver, senators Joni Ernst, Tom Harkins, and Kim Reynolds, to name a few. You could be on that list soon!

Now, of course, you need a good (rather the best) place to stay off-campus (good students live on campus, better ones stay off).
