Live in a Hall, Have a Ball!

Keep your room, move down the hall or move to a different building - it's up to you! Res halls are the ultimate in convenience, location, leadership opportunities and life with friends. Utilities are included, there's always something to do, you don't have to move furniture around and we have a ton of room styles available on campus.

If you're looking for a single room, consider Wallace Hall or search AccessPlus for singles available in some of our buildings. Buchanan Hall offers single suites. You get your own room that connects to another room via a bathroom. Or, you can choose to have a double room to yourself (the other set of furniture stays).

To choose a space:

  • Log in to AccessPlus
  • Submit a 2020-21 housing contract
  • Find the room you want and choose it!

What's so great about campus life?

Staff - We're the only option 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. 

Students - When else in your life to you get to live with a bunch of your friends? There's always someone to study with, hang out with and new friends to meet. 

Success - You're set up for success. Students who live on campus graduate faster, earn higher GPAs and have more free time than those who don't. Plus, they're more involved and more connected to Iowa State.

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?

Food - No meal planning, grocery shopping, cooking or cleaning up! You have fun, we do all the cooking. Our menus change all the time so you don't get bored and have a big variety of food to choose from! 

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? Everything is included when you live on campus.

Options - We have suites, res-hall rooms, single rooms and apartments all with a true campus connection.
