University Towers Apartments exterior

Please Note: Currently, there are no available apartments at University Tower for graduate and undergraduate students.  We encourage you to review other housing options online.

There are 2 & 3-bedroom units still available for medical students.

University Tower Apartments opened in 1995. This modern 11-story complex is located one block south of Forest Ave at the southern edge of main campus and just west of the School of Medicine. University Tower offers spacious one, two, and three-bedroom units. University Tower is the home to upper-class, graduate, medical, and professional students and their families. We have a very diverse community with students from various parts of the world. Students who wish to live in University Tower Apartments must be at least 20 years of age or junior standing.

University Tower is rented by the apartment, not by the bedroom/bed in the apartment. The rates listed are per semester. The per semester cost is then divided between the number of people assigned to the apartment. 

We do not assign roommates at University Towers. You are responsible for finding your own roommate(s) and encourage you to talk with others about living together. To add a roommate after the self-selection period, review the Apartment Roommate Request Form.
