Roommates and Room for Rent

Roommate/Room for Rent

Added: May 20, 2020

Hello! My name is Alex Bishop, I am going to be a VM1 student in the fall of 2020, and am looking for a roommate (preferably another veterinary student) to rent out the second bedroom in my mobile home. A little about myself: I am from northeast Iowa and grew up on a small crop and livestock farm. I'm passionate about large animal medicine, and have attended Iowa State as an undergrad for the past three years. I enjoy working out, playing with pets, and socializing on weekends with friends.

The house is located in the Old Orchard park and is about a 5 minute walk to the veterinary school. My house is a two bedroom, two bathroom with a spacious living room and kitchen area. Pets are negotiable, but need to be cat friendly. Rent will be about $450 per month and we will split utilities. The pictures below are from the previous owners, and include the living room/kitchen and the second bedroom/bathroom. Please send me an email at ambishop@iastate.edu for inquiries!

Room for Rent

Added: April 27, 2020

I'm looking for a vet student, either a freshman or sophomore to share my home while you are a student. The rent will be $100 a month due the last day of each month. All I ask in addition is a little help with my fur kids. I have 3 Chihuahuas and 3 cats. You will have your own bedroom and a 2nd room which brings in a lot of nice sunlight you could use as your study and your own bathroom complete with tub and shower. I am presuming you have your own computer but I have 2 laser printers, one color and one not to which you could also have access. I am vegetarian so if you are interested in eating anything that had a face, you will have to eat out because the smell of cooking meat is not something to which I want to expose my poor nose. Other than that, you can have full access to my kitchen and my dishwasher. You can keep your food in my refrigerator/freezer and   you can also have one of the cupboards in the kitchen for canned goods or whatever if needed. I have a washer and dryer in the lower level of the house to which you would also have access. My home is approximately 10 miles from the Vet College so you are going to need a vehicle. I am faculty on Central campus. Fall semester, I have a Monday, Wednesday, Friday teaching schedule. Tuesdays and Thursdays I'm working from home. Spring that changes to Tuesday and Thursday teaching. If interested please contact me, Kathleen Waggoner, Political Science Adjunct Associate Professor, ISU (waggonk@iastate.edu).
