Partnered Collaboration with Hawkeye Community College

For years, we’ve had an ongoing, mutually beneficial relationship with HCC because, in the end, we’re both supporting students on their journey. We work with HCC’s liaison of Housing, as well as Administration, Counseling and Security department to provide an optimal an safe experience for student-tenants.

After Hours Security

The police you may see at Hawkeye Towers after hours on various nights and special occasions are active policemen and women. Our preference is to hire actual, off-duty policemen and women because being active police officers, they have been trained to quickly recognize and handle various situations and get to know our valued tenants and their friends in a friendly, non-obtrusive way.

Effective Security Measures Inside & Out

On the exterior, we ensure that all our parking lots and exterior door fronts are well-lit from dusk till dawn. Remember, too, that each of the windows and doors at Hawkeye Towers have vertical blinds to ensure privacy, and each bedroom has its own lock.

No Icy Morning Drives

Hawkeye Towers is right across the street from the Hawkeye Community College Campus! You don’t have to worry about icy roads, fuel expense or safety issues that come up when long hauls occur between dorms and farther-reaching apartments and your student’s attendance at HCC.

And, even better than our steps from the campus, Hawkeye Tower apartments offer much greater expanse and roominess, ready AC, in-apartment laundry, two full bathrooms in each apartment and many more amenities than most apartments or UNI dorms don’t provide their tenants. Just look at this cost comparison for students who actually reside in UNI dorms but commute to HCC:

  • Hawkeye Towers: rent + utilities = avg $485/month leaving $430/month for food (food you like!)
  • UNI Dorms: Dorm + meal = avg $725/month + avg $125 fuel (40 mile round trip) = $850/month

Not to mention, many studies show that Freshman who live close to campus (within walking distance) tend to do better in school. They attend classes more often, participate in more activities, and generally live with others experiencing the same transition being away from home.
