Iona College is located in New Rochelle, New York, 20 miles north of Manhattan in suburban Westchester County. The college occupies 35 acres (140,000 m²) on North Ave.

The Iona Gaels are part of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) and participate in twenty-three (23) NCAA Division I programs. In most sports, their fiercest rivals include Manhattan College, Fordham University, University of Miami and Fairfield University. The Iona Men's Basketball team made it to the 2006 NCAA Basketball Tournament, only to be ousted by the LSU Tigers in the first round. Since then, the Gaels went on a 22-game losing streak (dating back to last year's NCAA tournament loss). This streak ended on February 3rd with a win over Rider University 69-57. Not only did this break their streak, but Iona also became the last Division I team to win a game in 2007.
