In partnership and support from the Iowa House Hotel, Undergraduate Student Government, Student Legal Services, the Iowa Memorial Union, University Housing & Dining, and Student Care and Assistance, undergraduate, graduate, and professional students have the option to apply for lodging as a part of the Lease Gap Program.

The Iowa House Hotel will provide temporary hotel rooms for University of Iowa students who live off campus but may be without housing between the end of their 2023-2024 lease and the start of their 2024-2025 lease. 

The Lease Gap program will run from July 28th to August 3rd, 2024. Parking in the Hancher Auditorium lot is free with registration.Rooms are $25 a night with a minimum stay of 3 nights (USG subsidizes $25 for each night of your stay, for each room from the reduced cost of $50 per night). 

The 2024 Lease Gap Program is currently full.

Due to a large number of applicants, the Lease Gap program waitlist is currently closed. Those who are in the program will have received a confirmation email from the Iowa House Hotel. If you do not have a confirmation email, that means you are on the waitlist. The Iowa House Hotel will contact you directly if a space has become available in the 2024 Lease Gap program.
