For campus housing, Loftus, South, and Conese halls are bunched together across the street from Iona. Loftus is only for freshmen and should definitely be a part of your Iona experience. If you are not able to live there freshman year, it is unfortunate because it is a really vibrant place to live for your first year of college. South and Conese are suites with students living in large numbers. Suites range from seven to 10 people, which can be a lot of responsibility for students. The two other residence halls are Rice and East halls. Rice Hall is the oldest living space on campus and is mainly intended for singles. Yet even though it has singles, Rice has one of the closest communities of all the residence halls.
The apartments come in studio, one-, or two-bedroom units next to Iona. Living in these areas is a lot harder than living in one of the dorms because it is less like a college setting and also dirtier in general. However, the social environment in all settings is ideal because after freshman year, a student can choose where he or she would like to go. For example, if a person wants to be in a quiet and mature setting, he or she will choose Rice. If a person wants to be with his or her friends a lot, he or she will choose South.
