Information and Updates for the Iona Community on Coronavirus

Housing Selection

Housing Selection is an exciting time for our returning students. We know that for each member of our campus community, their home is one of the most important pieces of their journey at Iona. Our department works diligently to ensure that each student is aware of the various phases of our Housing Selection process, so that it’s easy to make our residential communities your home away from home. Please review the information below to assist you in planning out your involvement in this year’s process. For additional information on any item, contact our Assistant Director of Housing Operations, Samantha Danico, at
