Make Iona Your Home

Most of our undergraduates choose to live on campus and enjoy all the benefits of a beautiful, secure and lively environment. Just 20 miles from New York City, and convenient to all the amenities of our local community, on-campus living has the best of both worlds.

Here’s why our students choose campus living during their years at Iona:

  • Hassle-free. On-campus housing is available all four years, so you don’t have to go through the hassle of renting apartments off-campus.
  • More cost-effective. No monthly bills for electricity, heat, water, Internet, cable, parking, waste and snow removal, furniture, cleaning, maintenance, food and 24/7 security–all are included!
  • Safe and Secure. Iona’s Campus Safety and Security Department works 24/7 to ensure a safe environment for our community. There are security cameras in the residence halls and around campus.
  • Convenient. Walk to class, meetings, the library and gatherings with friends. No need to drive, pay for gas or search for a parking space.

The Office of Residential Life serves students who complete all forms and qualify for housing based on admission qualifications and as space allows. The program offers several distinct living environments, each with its own special features.
