Make Iona Your Home
Welcome to Iona College’s Office of Residential Life. Our goal is to provide a community to our Gael force that is supportive of students’ academic endeavors, complements classroom learning, and that promotes individual development. With a variety of living areas, students are able to feel like they are home away from home.
As we approach our Housing Selection process for the 2018-2019 academic year, we want each member of our community to be as informed as possible on how to make Iona their home. Our team hosts various housing selection information sessions throughout the month leading up to the roommate group formation period, during which students will receive detailed information around each step of our process and have a chance to ask questions. We will also be hosting various tours of our upperclassmen residential communities, so that you can learn all about the spaces on Iona’s campus that our students call home. Learn more about information session and residential tour opportunities.
Consistent with Iona College’s mission and the core values of the Christian Brothers, the Office of Residential Life strives to foster a safe, inclusive, respectful, and engaging community that enhances the student learning experience. We are committed to providing students with opportunities for growth and development. By offering leadership and employment opportunities, as well as social events, that equip students with a greater sense of awareness and responsibility, we are committed to enhancing the on campus experience.
Here’s why our students choose to make Iona their home:
