No need to rush to class in the morning when you can walk 15 minutes to the western edges of the University of Iowa. Stop in cafés along the way to pick up a morning coffee and pastry. There’s supermarkets within walking distance as well, so popping out to pick up essentials is no trouble. You’ll find places to eat within a couple of blocks walk, or you can always cycle downtown in around 10 minutes.
From 413 S Johnson Street, you can walk to the university library in 15 minutes to change your books or head to the student union and find out what social events are coming up. Meet up with fellow students to work on group projects on campus and you’re never more than a five-minute bike ride from home when you want to retreat for some peace and quiet.
Share a two-bedroom apartment with a friend and sit at the breakfast bar each morning and chat about your day before you head off for classes. Use the microwave to heat up a quick snack or pull together a feast using fresh ingredients from the local farmers’ markets. You’ve got all the appliances and space you need to cook together. Freshen up in the bathroom before heading out to watch the big game and come home to a safe, secure property for a good night’s sleep.
