For the 2016-2017 year- Iona will have six resident halls. There is housing offered for all four years, so seniors don't have to worry about being kicked off, but most seniors like moving into an apartment to ease the transition from college to the real-world.
East Hall is a freshman dorm that has almost all doubles and some triples. It is 3 floors, has A/C, a kitchen, and a clean laundry room. Since it is communal bathrooms, they are cleaned very thoroughly 2-3 times a day! Because of the small size, it is known for making a tight-knit community with two lounges. It is also in the center of campus.
Loftus Hall is a freshman dorm that has suites of two rooms that are doubles. It is 10 floors, has A/C, a large kitchen with microwaves on each floor, an a huge laundry room. It has one bathroom per suite that needs to be taken care of by those in the room. There are also two lounges and a prayer room.
South and Conese are dorms for sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Both are 6 floors with A/C. Both have suites that include three rooms of doubles and one triple. Each suite has a common room with a fridge, freezer, couches, sink, and stove. There are two bathrooms per suite that the residents of the rooms take care of.
Rice is the oldest residence hall and it is almost all singles but the farthest from campus. It is also the only hall without A/C but has the communal bathrooms cleaned 2-3 times a day thoroughly.
As of the new school year, a new residence hall will be completed that will be for sophomore, junior, and senior students. It will have A/C and suites of two doubles, or four singles.
There are also houses in the area that students can rent, along with apartments.
