The Quarters - Ames

Ames, IA | Housing


The Quarters at Ames provides residents with a student-focused, resort-style housing complex that offers a modern environment with on-site amenities, activities, and community-centric opportunities.


Growing enrollment numbers at Iowa State University created a need for additional housing options in the area tailored to the needs of the University’s dynamic student population. A greenfield site located southeast of the University’s campus provided an ideal location for the development and its residents.


ISG continued its partnership with Tailwind Group, the developer of The Quarters, to bring an affordable, high-amenity development to the University’s students. The community features ten residential buildings that support 195 units and 518 beds. The units have single- and multi-level, open-concept floorplans with multiple bedrooms, each with their own walk-in-closet and restroom, and a balcony or walk-out option. High end finishes, such as wood flooring and stainless steel, complete the community and residential spaces.

The on-site clubhouse offers residents a space to host regular social events and opportunities for interaction to help create a community atmosphere. The common space features two outdoor pools and one hot tub. In addition to community spaces, a fitness center and quiet study spaces were designed to promote wellness and support rigorous academics.
