Iowa City is considered one of the best places to live in the country. After just one visit, you'll see why. 

Our campus seamlessly blends into downtown Iowa City, which makes it easy to get wherever you need to go. In fact, most first-year classes are located within the same three-block radius. And the center of it all is just across the street from a lively downtown with all the restaurants, entertainment, and amenities you'd find in a big city.
