Welcome to the On-Campus Experience!

Spring Clean-Up Day Volunteers
Community Advisors having fun

In the Department of Residence, we understand how important living on-campus is to the student experience. Living on campus is so much more than a room! You’re part of a community, our staff is here to support you, it’s easy to get involved, and statistics show that on-campus students have a lot going for them.

Almost 95% of all new freshmen live on-campus and almost 50% of current residents decide to come back to on-campus housing for the next year. This is the greatest compliment our residents could give us! This is especially incredible when you consider that no one is required to live on-campus at ISU! 

Over 12,000 ISU students choose to make on-campus housing their "Cyclone" home. Why should you live on campus?

  • Location, location, location - Be close to classes, food and fun.
  • Friends - Someone's always around to study, chat or just hang out with.
  • Convenience - time and stress: no monthly bills (except SUV), utilities included, restaurant quality dining with no prep or clean-up.
  • Support - Rough class? We'll help you get the support you need.
  • Leadership - Build your resume! Involvement opportunities are endless.
