Iona removes postings from the Off-Campus Housing listing upon a landlord's request (via phone or email). Off-Campus Housing also periodically contacts landlords who have current postings to see if the spaces are still available. If you do not respond to Off-Campus Housing by the designated date indicated, the listing will be removed for your convenience.
Students typically start looking for housing as early as February for the next academic year. Therefore Off-Campus Housing starts accepting news postings on February 1.
To update your listing, please email your posting changes to Michele Sampson.
The Off-Campus Housing listing is posted on a password protected page of the Iona website for members of the Iona community. The listing will also be shared with accepted students and incoming employees.
Faculty and staff have access to the regular Off-Campus Housing listing. However, Off-Campus Housing does maintain a listing for faculty/staff only. However, this listing is not posted publically and there are significantly fewer faculty/staff members looking for housing. Most faculty/staff looking for housing are incoming entry level professionals looking for a studio or a one bedroom apartment. Very few faculty/staff inquire about larger house rentals or purchases.
First, please confirm that the phone number and email address you submitted are accurate. Then, consider if your monthly rent is too high. Making a small change to your listing may draw additional attention to it. Please note that "rooms" for rent in the local community are the least popular off-campus housing option. Also, students like to be able to walk to campus. Most students are set in housing by the beginning of the school year (late August). Most do not move until the end of the academic year (mid May). Students start looking for housing as early as February for the next academic year. Iona cannot guarantee that a space posted on the Off-Campus Housing listing will be rented.
Yes, but you still must fill out part of an online form here. Once you receive your confirmation email from Off-Campus Housing, please make sure all of the information is accurate and up-to-date.
