UI launches off-campus housing website

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Students looking to find an off-campus apartment at the University of Iowa can now turn to an improved school-run website to help in their search.

University officials say they hope the new website helps students, parents, faculty and staff as well as local property owners and managers. The school says it updated the website after it received requests for more specific information. Now the website has floor plans, maps and photographs of properties.

The new website has a searchable database of housing units in the Iowa City area. The service is free for searchers but those listing a property will have to pay a fee.

Message boards to find roommates and buy and sell furniture also are available.
