A limited number of University-owned houses and apartments are available for incoming faculty and staff on a temporary basis while they seek permanent housing. Occupancy is limited to two years. Faculty and staff are encouraged to limit occupancy to one year. Rental rates are increased significantly in addition to the market-adjusted rental rate each year after the first year.
New incoming faculty and staff will be assigned University-owned housing on a date-of-application basis. Applicants must be able to show proof of University affiliation at time of assignment.
Faculty and staff who have lived in the Iowa City area more than three months are not eligible to rent these homes.
