We encourage you to take advantage of our on-campus housing. The residence halls and apartment complexes are conveninent and provide many resourses and services. Students are especially encouraged to stay in the residence halls at least during their first semester at ISU. Students are more likely to succeed academically and make social connections by living with other international and American students. Visit the Housing Office website for information on cost and availablity.
