Park in the off-street parking at 418 S Van Buren, and you’ll be able to drive just four minutes to your classes at The University of Iowa when you’re running late. If the sun is shining, skip your morning coffee at home and walk instead – there are plenty of places to pick up a hot drink on the way to class. Try The Java House for a nutty caramel latte, or Fair Grounds Coffeehouse for a frothy cappuccino. After university, pay a visit to The Broken Spoke and World of Bikes nearby to pick up a new or used bike, and cycle along the scenic Iowa River in just minutes.
Your new home has tons of storage, so you can afford to spend a few afternoons rummaging through the local thrift shops, just a short drive from home. Try Crowded Closet for quirky ornaments and gifts, and Sweet Livin’ Antiques, Arts & Records for a great selection of vinyl. Your apartment at 418 S Van Buren has on-site laundry facilities, so you can always wash and donate some old outfits yourself!
Get home after class and tuck into a snack while you hang out with your roommates, and chat about your day as you relax together. If you make a mess while cooking, you’ll find cleaning up a breeze with your dishwasher which can take care of the pots and pans. Switch on the central air conditioning or heating, then head through to your room to get started on your latest assignment in comfort. Later on, you’ll get a good night’s sleep knowing your secure apartment is in a quiet, residential neighborhood away from the urban hustle and bustle.
