Everything Your Student Needs

Copper Beech Ames is designed to support student productivity through community amenities like a fully equipped computer lab and individual study rooms. Students can get social and stay healthy through shared spaces like a state-of-the-art fitness center, game room, and resort-style pool. Copper Beech Ames meets every need your student may have, so they can succeed in a fun, social atmosphere.

Individual Leases

Individual leasing means peace of mind for you. Your financial responsibility is your student’s space only—unlike many apartments or rental houses with joint leases. That means if a roommate transfers or moves out for any reason, you don’t have to worry about covering their portion.

On-Site Professional Staff

Our on-site maintenance staff responds to maintenance issues quickly and professionally. Copper Beech Ames also offers 24-hour emergency maintenance so your student’s comfort is never affected by a maintenance issue.

Affordable Floor Plans

Copper Beech Ames offers four spacious floor plans so you can find the perfect one to match your student’s needs. Each one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom townhome includes private suites, walk-in closets, a full kitchen, and in-home laundry.

Fully Furnished Apartments

Copper Beech Ames is a fully furnished community. Each room comes furnished with a full-size bed and mattress, a desk and desk chair, a dresser, and end table. The furniture in the living area varies depending on the size of the apartment, and the kitchen comes fully equipped with energy-efficient appliances, a refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, oven and stove, a table and chairs, and a washer and dryer.

Roommate Matching

If your student doesnʼt have a roommate, we can find them one! Each roommate will fill out a Roommate Matching form so we know what theyʼre looking for. During the summer, we spend weeks looking at these preferences and matching them up with the best person available.

Resident Events

At Copper Beech Ames, your student will create life-long relationships and connections that will make them even more successful after graduation. Our staff plans monthly resident events to help keep students involved. These range from pizza parties to karaoke nights and from resume-building classes to
gaming tournaments. We also keep our residents connected to events going on at Iowa State as well as events happening around town so they never miss a thing.

Frequently asked questions

What does it mean to have an individual lease?

Copper Beech Ames offers individual leases per person instead of per apartment. This means if your roommate fails to pay their rent, you won’t be held responsible.

What is included in the rent?

Copper Beech Ames rent includes all your furniture and appliances, water and sewer, Internet, and electricity usage up to $25 per room.

Do you have a roommate matching system?

Yes, we offer a roommate matching system. When you fill out your lease agreement, you’ll also fill out a resident profile card which includes a questionnaire about your lifestyle and preferences. If you need to be matched with a roomie, we’ll use this information to find you roommates with similar interests. We take roommate matching very seriously and spend a lot of time making sure that we find just the right fit.

When is my rent due?

You have three installment payment options to pay the entire amount due under the lease: one installment, two installments, or twelve installments. If you choose to pay
a single installment for the entire amount, that single installment is due August 1. If you choose to pay in two-semester installments, those installments are due August 1
and January 1. If you choose to pay in twelve installments, the first installment is due on August 1 and the remaining eleven installments are due on the 1st of the next
eleven months. Please note, these are all installment payment options and not monthly rent.
