Inspired by the elite hospitality experiences offered by top hotels, restaurants, and spas around the globe, Campus Life & Style has elevated expectations when it comes to serving our customers. Stemming from a one-of-a-kind partnership with the leading five-star hospitality and concierge service training company, CLS invested in developing a platform catering to students and parents. And as a result of that development, we spent three years training our teams under the Forbes Travel Guide before launching into our own in-house hospitality services.
Incredible expertise and deep-rooted knowledge of the highest level of service standards were applied to create a CLS hospitality training workshop for our communities, and an extensive monthly curriculum to keep these philosophies and expectations in the forefront of our teams’ minds.
Complementing our beautiful communities, this exceptional standard of service truly creates a student housing experience like none other.
What Folks Are Saying
Super friendly staff, always greet you when you come in! Also super convenient location right next to campus, bus stops, and a lot of restaurants. Great views from your apartment too!
The Foundry is the best. I love being able to walk to class and when class is too far I am able to take the cyride that stops every few minutes!
Whenever you walk into the lobby you are greeted which goes a long way to brighten your day. The rooms are fully furnished with high end furniture...The other amenities such as free starbucks, great study room, gym, and tanning booth are all amazing touches as well. If I could go back through college at Iowa State, I would choose living at the Foundry 100/100 times
