It’s a 15-minute walk to the University of Iowa from your base at 430 S Van Buren. When you’re short on time, you can drive or cycle to class in four minutes flat, and use the off-street parking back home for a small additional cost. On weekends, you’re a pleasant 15-minute walk from the bustling Downtown District, but there’s also a bus stop within a block away if you’d rather use public transport. If you’re in the mood for a change of scenery, the Greyhound Bus Station is just three minutes away by bike.
Back home in your two-bedroom apartment after a busy day of classes, you can drop your book bag off in your room and head to the kitchen to grab a drink from the refrigerator. Chat to your roommate about your day as you prepare a snack, and don’t worry if your cupboards are bare – there’s an Aldi supermarket within a seven-minute drive if you need to pick up some essentials.
Your apartment is wired for cable and internet, so you can take a few minutes to relax and watch TV, or go online to research your latest assignment. When you’ve finished studying, freshen up with a hot shower, then make dinner plans with your roommate; make your favorite meal on the stove, or eat out if you’re not in the mood to cook. Head to nearby Sanctuary Pub for a Sanctuary Special Pizza and craft beer, or try the Drunken Thai Noodle at Thai Flavors.
You won’t waste any time on trips to the laundromat back home, because there are laundry facilities on site. You’ll also find it easy to manage your money because heating, water and trash are included in your rent, and the friendly maintenance team is always available if you run into any problems.
