What's so great about our apartments?

Staff - We're the only apartments in town with a true campus connection and live-in staff members dedicated to your success. They're Iowa State employees who can help connect you with resources on campus.

Contracts - Our contracts (aka: leases) are for the academic year. Sure, we have summer options if you need them but most of the time, you're off doing amazing internships and having fun in the summer. Why pay for space when you're not here or worry about a sub leasing?

Utilities - Off campus life seems cheaper on the surface, right? What happens when you get a $500 utility bill (yes, we do have data to back up the fact that it happens!). Are you financially prepared for fluctuating bills? What about internet? Cable? Electric? Gas? Water? Trash removal? Is that all included? In Frederiken, all utilities are included in your rate. In University Village, you pay a gas bill.

Options - Frederiksen is fully furnished in the kitchen, living room and all bedrooms. University Village is unfurnished townhouse-style units at a lower rate. Our options can fit your budget and not matter what you choose, you always get all of the other benefits that come with campus living.
