Apartments are numerous in the Iowa City/Coralville area. Students are responsible for making their own arrangements. For your convenience, we encourage you to secure housing within the Iowa City/Coralville city limits that is within walking distance to the Hospital and Health Sciences Campus or is served by public and free campus transportation. All bus systems use Bongo: Real-time Passenger Information System. Carver College of Medicine students can add roommate wanted/sublet/rent/buy/sell property to the ICON discussion board.
If you live outside the Iowa City/Coralville city limits you can apply for a parking permit in the Hawkeye or Finkbine commuter lots. Apply on line at https://parking.uiowa.edu/. Click on “Order Permits or Bus Passes” and login with your hawkid. Follow the onscreen directions from there. The cost of a commuter lot permit is $225 for the 9 month period, billed to your U-bill.
Medical students may also add summer sublets or apartment rentals by going to the Off-Campus Housing Service website.
A large list of apartments can be found on-line in the three local newspapers:
