Just wanted to add my experience: 7 years ago I took a professional (but part-time so very low paying) job in Iowa City. It started in May. I found a teeny house right on the river south of town for $650 a month through an ad in the paper. It was a WONDERFUL living experience, and I have a fund of great stories to tell about that home. Have you ever watched a river during a hail storm? So beautiful! Things may have changed in 7 years, but just wanted folks to know that anything is possible if you just keep your eyes open and look beyond the obvious.

Consider looking at Coralville too if you still have the time. Rents there are pretty low but you pay for it with longer commutes to the University.
