Hey, we meet again! Maybe we'll be classmates at Iowa or get into MN!

Are they at the Lodge? I have read a lot of bad things about their apartments. Though, I haven't heard anything about about how people in the Grad building like it.


In case it IS The Lodge, MoS's suspicions are probably true. I checked them out during one of my visits and they are overpriced for what you get. They feel like a dorm. All the "amenities" are pretty crappy, too.


Yes its the Lodge.. it looked pretty nice "online" lol..But i deff don't want to live in a place full of undergrads (no offense) Any other good places from your visit? I wonder where do the law students live might be good to check that place out..

sques - I thought The Lodge looked great online too, which is why I made sure to check it out. It's just not worth the price. It is kind of far too, and I don't think they can guarantee you aren't going to be stuck with a bunch of undergraduates. The closest places to the law school include Seville, Carriage Hill, Westwood Westside, and Benton Manor (I think?). From what I've been told a lot of law students live at Seville (including a few people in this thread). I believe they are out of one bedrooms and quite possibly two bedrooms as well, unfortunately. I'd still check there first, as I think they have the best combination of price/quality/location.

I don't think the Lodge would be a terrible deal if you knew who you roommates were going to be. But I remember one of the main complaints I heard was about the safety of the parking lot. I guess cars get broken into a lot.

Does anyone know anything about Sycamore apartments? They're on the east side (I believe) but are one of the only places I've been able to find that allow large dogs. Or does anyone know any other places that will take larger size (>25 lbs) dogs?

Have you looked at Dolphin Lake? I know they allow pets but they have some restrictions. They are kind of far though, and unless you spring for the expensive new apartments, the older ones are kind of old/in bad shape.

I called there and the guy I spoke with on the phone was not very helpful. I was planning to try calling again tomorrow and asking to speak with someone else.

Yeah I have checked it (the list) and contacted a couple people but have not heard back yet. At the same time, I did not submit my info for a roommate and I know of at least one guy who is not going to Iowa but is on the list. I thought this would be a last resort...

Also, I would prefer to live with another girl and be relatively close to campus :)

sques001 - PM if you want to chat about a living situation.

emorystud2010- PM your email and I can forward you the email they sent about housing. The link to the list is a few pages back but they have a lot more info in the email about housing that is close to the school.

Just got approved for my apartment at Benton Villa. Looks like my waiting is over, and I'll be a Hawkeye this fall. Looking forward to meeting everyone.
