Roommate Wanted

Updated: 8/14/23

1 private bedroom available!

We are searching for a new roommate (female preferred) for this upcoming year, with the ability for immediate move in! You’d live with a female 3rd year veterinary medicine student and a female 2nd year anthropology graduate student. We are both easy going, clean and organized people who’ve lived here for multiple years! 

We are located in the safe and scenic Old Town Historic District in Ames - a block away from a CyRide red line bus stop on Duff Street (free for ISU students), a 5 minute walk to downtown Ames, and only a 5-10 minute drive to the vet med and main ISU campuses. All private bedrooms and the shared bathroom are on the upper level. The available room will be unfurnished, has a closet, plenty of natural light, and overlooks Old Town Park. Furniture pictured in main floor living area will be leaving with our outgoing roommate. We have a two stall garage in addition to street parking in front of the house, a basement with a washer and dryer, an enclosed breezeway, three gardening plots in the side yard, and a fenced in backyard with a portable fire pit. The current animals in the house will be leaving with our outgoing roommate - Pets are encouraged with no additional initial deposit or monthly fee!

Leases are for 1 year, with the ability to sublet if needed. Upon lease signing, a one-time security deposit of $550 (returned at end of lease if not renewed) and first month’s rent are due. Monthly rent is $490 + utilities. Rent and utilities have the option of being paid via Venmo for your convenience.

Please reach out to Michelle Langlois via e-mail ( or by phone (231-571-5817) if you have any questions or interests in our room!

Bedroom available in a 3 bed/2 bath apartment in West Ames in August less than 10 minutes from the vet school. Rent is $450 plus utilities. You will have your own bathroom that you will not have to share. My husband and I use the other two bedrooms and bathroom. Living here come with a free gym membership to Ames Racquet and Fitness and access to a 24/7 onsite gym. We have a dog and a cat that are friendly in the apartment. Open to other animals depending on whether they get along with other pets; however, another dog might make the apartment a bit crowded. Please contact Mary Shytles at I have attached a 3D tour of the apartment.
