Deadline nears for students to reapply for campus housing

Students currently living in the residence halls received an email from University Housing & Dining in January with details about how to reapply for campus housing. The email includes the day and time that the student is authorized to sign in online to reapply. The deadline to reapply is Feb. 28 at 5 p.m.

Students living in a room without a university-supplied kitchen will be required to choose a meal plan. Each room contract also includes $200 in Hawkeye Dollars ($100 per semester). Hawkeye Dollars may be used at Burge and Hillcrest Market Places, campus C-stores, and all campus cafés and quick-serve food services, as well as in residence hall vending machines and washers and dryers.

However, returning students may be especially interested in Bloomington House, Dubuque House, Parklawn, and Centerstone, all of which are apartment-style residence halls geared toward upper-class students. In addition, more than 30 living-learning communities (LLCs) welcome returning students. The main LLC for returning students is Community 234. In addition, there are many new LLCs; for details, see
