Everything your student needs
Grove at Ames is designed to support student productivity through community amenities like a fully equipped study area and computer lab with free printing. Students can get social and stay healthy through shared spaces like our 24-hour fitness center, resort-style pool, and basketball court. Our fully furnished apartment community meets every need your student may have, so they can succeed in a fun, social atmosphere.
Individual leasing means peace of mind for you. Your financial responsibility is your student’s space only—unlike many apartments or rental houses with joint leases. That means if a roommate transfers or moves out for any reason, you don’t have to worry about covering their portion.
On-Site Professional Staff
Our on-site maintenance staff responds to maintenance issues quickly and professionally. Grove at Ames also offers 24-hour emergency maintenance so your student’s comfort is never affected by a maintenance issue.
Affordable Floor Plans
Grove at Ames offers two- and three-bedroom floor plans so you can find the perfect one to match your student’s needs. Every option comes with private suites, walk-in closets, a full kitchen, and in-home laundry.
Fully Furnished Apartments
Grove at Ames is a fully furnished community. Each room comes furnished with a full-size bed and mattress, a desk and desk chair, a dresser, and an end table. The furniture in the living area varies depending on the size of the apartment but can include a couch, sofa chair, ottoman, side table, kitchen table, and dining chairs. The kitchen comes fully equipped with a refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, and a washer and dryer.
If your student doesn’t have a roommate, we can find them one! Each roommate will fill out a Roommate Matching form so we know what they’re looking for. During the summer, we spend weeks looking at these preferences and matching them up with the best person available.
Here, your student will create life-long relationships and connections that will make them even more successful after graduation. Our staff plans monthly resident events to help keep students involved. These range from pizza parties to karaoke nights and from resume-building classes to gaming tournaments. We also keep our residents connected to events going on at Iowa State University as well as events happening around town so they never miss a thing.
