The quality of ISU's campus housing varies. Some of the dorms are well-kept and maintained; other dorms have more problems. Turner Hall is definitely the dorm to live in to get to know a lot of different people. The men-only and women-only dorms are more intimate and not as crazy. The dorms are also more convenient for students with classes on Upper Campus.
But the dorms are located close to Reed Gym, so that is always good motivation. The Rendezvous Center provides 72 apartments with 301 beds. There have been some complaints from the community and faculty about the facility costing a lot of money that is needed elsewhere, but students still definitely have more opportunities for luxurious housing. With most students living off campus, Rendezvous gets students more involved with what is happening on campus. It also brings students together, as they will be living in a more tight-knit community in the same building.
