Start your weekend at Iowa. From a campus walking tour to a downtown crawl, music lovers, foodies, art fans, and everyone in between will find something to love.

Iowa Friday Night Live is for soon-to-be high school seniors and their families who are entering college in Fall 2022.

We will kick off with a tour of a Residence Hall, followed by a walking tour of campus where guides share their student experience. The tour will conclude with a stroll around Iowa City’s award-winning downtown, featuring stops at selected restaurants for food sampling. We are unable to accommodate dietary restrictions during this event.


Health and Safety Guidelines

Campus visits will be limited in size and all visitors will agree to safety guidelines.

If you are not fully vaccinated, you are strongly encouraged to continue wearing a mask and physically distancing on campus. If you are fully vaccinated, you should feel comfortable continuing to wear a mask if you choose. Whether or not to wear a mask is a personal decision and is often unrelated to a person’s vaccination status. Do not harass a student, visitor, or staff member for choosing to wear, or not wear, a mask.

Masks continue to be required in health care settings and where required by state or federal guidelines (e.g., passengers on CAMBUS).
