How to Choose
your own
room at Iowa

View LLC locations for each floor.

View number of available beds per room type.

If it states 0 then there are no available rooms of that room type on that floor.

Floor charts are available after floor selection. You can return by clicking Floor.

Select a floor then Reserve Bed to continue in that building to see the available beds.

At any time you can select a different building in this process by clicking Building to change your selection.

Change Room appears after you have reserved a bed.

It allows you to pick a different room without canceling your first one.

Change rooms does not change your roommates room. If you wish to change rooms, both roommates will need to self-select through the Change Room page into the new room.

The first time with Choose our room, you can automatically bring your roommate into your room.

Change Room works just as Choose Your Room, without roommate options.

This page is optional

Cancel Application is available until your binding date. Your binding date will be in mid May-early June and will display on this page and on your Assignment Letter that is emailed to you in mid-late May

View your application status.

If you wish to cancel your application, you can do so by selecting Cancel Application.

This will cancel your booking, meal plan, and your Housing & Dining application. It does not affect your University of Iowa Admission status. You will need to contact Admissions if you are not attending the University of Iowa.

On this page you can assign yourself to a room. You can also assign your mutually confirmed roommate. You can now view the buildings, floors, and rooms available for your top LLCs and select your room.

Please note that LLC preferences and rankings cannot be adjusted during this stage of the room selection process. Applicants only have access to all buildings, floors, and rooms, assigned to their top LLC choices.

Start the actual room selection by Clicking “Choose Your Room” within your housing application. You can get to it by going to ISIS or www.liveon.uiowa.edu

These are not changeable.

Choose the best LLC/Building combination for you.

Click the room number at the left to select the room.
