                       COME HOME TO CONVENIENCE

   There’s just something about living on campus - the school camaraderie...the
   excitement of game day...the variety of entertainment offerings... the ease of life in University
   managed housing.

   University Housing at UI provides comfortable and convenient options for student families and
   more independent students who still want the experience of on-campus living. Hawkeye Court,
   Hawkeye Drive and Parklawn Apartments combine the relaxed atmosphere of apartment living
   with the perks of living on-campus.

 * The University reserves the right, at its discretion, to determine that a student’s / staff member’s medical condition, past
 behavior, and/or criminal activity is such that the best interests of the University, the student/staff and/or other tenants
 would be best served by alteration or cancellation of the apartment lease. If the University becomes aware that a student/
 staff has a record of criminal conviction(s) or other actions indicating behavior that could pose a risk to person or property
 and/or could be injurious or disruptive to the University Apartments community, the University may not accept or may im-
 mediately terminate the lease. Individuals who pose a clear and present danger to other residents are not eligible to live in
 University housing. Registered Sex Offenders are not eligible for University housing, either as a tenant or at the invitation
 of a lease holder.
