Our hometown has once again garnered accolades for being one of the best college towns.
Iowa City is ranked #1 in the nation on the Reviews.org list of the 2019-20 Best College Towns in Every State.
Reviews.org compiled the list of college towns with fewer than 250,000 people by considering factors like cost of living, job opportunities, ease of transportation, overall population, student population, college education rates, and city access among others. In addition to scoring the top spot overall, Iowa City ranked in the top ten for student employment, city access, and college-educated population.
It is the latest honor for Iowa City, which has also been designated as the #4 Best Place to Live by Livability, the #3 Best City for Recent College Graduates, and North America's first UNESCO City of Literature.
