Dorm and Facility Information


Basic Description
IUJ boasts 300 private rooms for all our single students, with private baths, a bed and bedding, desk and phones. Other comforts and decorations are supplied by the students. Incoming student are guaranteed a dorm room on campus their first year.

Married students can participate in a lottery to live in our Married Student Apartments (MSA) which are two-room unfurnished units with a kitchenette and separate bedroom. MSA units are for officially married couples and are not meant for those with children. However, a few units each year are made available for those with non-school aged children (up to 2 children younger than 5). With only 18 units available, there is usually a waiting list to get in. Units are allocated in a lottery system when/if a unit becomes available. Instructions are given to those on campus and who have expressed interest,  about bringing their spouse (and children under special situations).  IUJ reserves the right to give priority for MSA units to special needs situations and to student married couples without need for participating in the lottery.
