We have nearly 900 students on our campus in Fayette, Iowa. We’re proud to be Iowa’s only Division II NCAA athletic teams and Iowa’s most diverse (23%!) private university. Our class sizes are small (avg. 24) and our student-to-faculty ratio is 14:1 to provide all the personal attention you’ll need for your academic success.
Whether you live on campus or commute from nearby, you'll find what you need here. The 100-acre campus includes new suite-style residence hall(s),
a new student center
, a new Liberal Arts building and the only on-campus Mongolian Grill in the area! And a completely transformed football complex will open in Fall 2012, courtesy of an alumni gift. Just looking for a place to study? Try the Quiet Lounge, the Library, or a bench tucked away in a serene green space. And the master plan and capital campaign will continue to transform UIU.
Plus, UIU has helped to bring some new businesses to downtown Fayette including Pavo Blue and Cabo Blue Restaurant and Sports Lounge. There's lots to do in the area, especially if you love the outdoors. We have an 18-hole golf course, the beautiful Volga River Recreation area, a bike trail and free rental of all the outdoor recreation equipment you'll need for fun in the sun or in the snow.
And it's affordable. We work hard to keep tuition costs low; and, on average, a UIU student graduates with some of the least college debt in the state of Iowa according to the 2010 reports.
