We want your college student to be successful throughout their career at Iowa State University. They need a good foundation and support to gain this success. At The Edge, we want to help support their productivity by giving them a fully equipped computer lab and group study rooms at their fingertips. We want to keep them healthy with an on- site 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness center. We also want to help them relax, meet their neighbors, and provide a one-stop-shop by providing them with a luxury Clubhouse, Cyber Café and on-site retail. The Edge meets every need that your student will have while in college so they can achieve their academic goals in an enjoyable atmosphere. And our location directly across from ISU’s main entrances is ideal!

Individual leasing means peace of mind for you. Your financial responsibility is only for your student’s space, unlike many apartments or rental houses where a joint lease is signed. If a roommate transfers to another school or moves out of The Edge for any reason, you do not have to worry about having to cover their portion of rent. This is just another reason why The Edge is ISU student’s best housing option!

Our maintenance staff will respond to your student’s maintenance issues quickly and professionally. The Edge offers 24-hour emergency maintenance as well so that your student’s comfort is not affected.

The Edge has five spacious floor plan options so they will easily be able to find one to suit their needs. We have two-bedroom, three-bedroom, and four-bedroom apartment options. They each have their own bedroom and bathroom. Your student’s rent includes water, sewer, and internet, a 42” HDTV in the common area, premium cable with Showtime, wired and Wi-Fi Internet, modern furniture, access to The Edge amenities, and so much more!

The Edge is a fully-furnished community, saving you money! Each student will have a full-sized bed, end table, large desk and chair, dresser, WALK-IN closet, and private bathroom. The living area comes with a comfortable couch, chair, end table, (SEE FLOOR PLANS - only some units have end table and chair; all units have coffee table) TV stand with a 42” flat screen HDTV and barstools. The kitchen comes fully equipped with granite countertops, energy efficient appliances, full size refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, and washer & dryer.

If your student does not have a roommate in mind, we can find them one! Each roommate will fill out a Roommate Matching form so that we know what they are looking for in a roommate. During the summer, we spend weeks looking at these preferences and matching them up with the best person we can find!

While the main focus of your student’s college career will be about graduating and getting a fulfilling job, they also need to have fun along the way. At The Edge, your student will create life-long relationships and connections that will make them even more successful. Our great staff plans monthly resident events to get them involved. These events range from pizza parties to movie nights, from resume building classes to gaming tournaments. Annually, The Edge will have events such as a Welcome Back Party at the beginning of the fall semester, a Casino Night at the beginning of the spring semester, and a large competition among the residents and staff, as well as, many holiday events throughout the year. We will also keep our residents connected to events going on at ISU, as well as, events happening around town so they don’t miss anything!

We want your student to succeed, and that’s why we thought of them while designing The Edge to be in the center of it all!
