      The move in was easy, the papers they gave us had all needed info. Staff was supportive and apartment nice. Also nice that the community is composed by university people, it makes it easier for new comers.

          I really enjoyed staying at Aspire. Heat and air are controlled by the resident, maintenance requests are seen to promptly, and the indoor and outdoor areas are kept clean and tidy. Highly recommend for any U of Iowa students!

                The staff at Aspire are extremely kind, helpful, and understanding. Whenever I have had issues with my unit, they are resolved in a timely manner and staff is respectful. A really great place to live and a wonderful community!

                  This apartment was very convenient when it comes to being close to Iowa's campus. The bus stops multiple places near the apartment is again is very convenient. I liked how there was a washer and dryer in each unit.

                    I've had a really good experience. Maintenance goes above and beyond and there are lots of activities/ways to get involved. While I don't have a pet I love seeing all of the animals around the complex, being that aspire is so pet friendly.

                      Good and satisfying. Aspire is located in a very convenient location where the main campus bus (Cambus) passes through in a regular interval. Market and downtown area are also near by. Service in Aspire is excellent.

                        Aspire is great for professionals and scholars at the University of Iowa. There is quick cambus service and the maintenance staff is highly efficient. All in all a good option for short term stay in Iowa city.

                            The staff seems friendly and they will try to sell you the idea of community. The truth is this is a corporation that cares zero about people. I was almost evicted over a misunderstanding that could have been resolved with a conversation with the manager.… See More >

                              Amenities have improved over the years, and bus schedule is very convenient. Ample study space in and outside of my unit! I just wish some of the materials used in construction were slightly more high quality.

                                                    Q: Why is the gym so terrible here? For how expensive this place is I have seen home gyms more impressive.

                                                    A: They used this "fitness center" as an excuse to jack the price up. In my opinion it's false advertising. I lived in San Diego for $700 a month not too long ago. There's nothing to do in Iowa City relative to big cities to justify the cost. There's no excuse. They dont even spend on employees. The whole place is almost entirely unattended. The least they could do is hire more people who need jobs. And this place is supposed to be housing for graduate and professional students. The UI regents had the chance to strike down the asinine pricing. They chose not to. Probably has something to do with fact that the UI president has zero academic background. Only a business degree with a specialty in gutting and rearranging companies.

                                                    A: Its not enforced, even when the office is open, so not very easy.

                                                    A: Their are a few guest spots, but when the office is closed nothing is enforced and residents and guests take up all of these spots. Happens most of the time even when the office is open.
