We look forward to welcoming you to campus and answering your questions about the University of Iowa. All visitors will need to agree to safety guidelines (listed below), and each student is limited to 2 guests.

Summer Visit Options

Choose the option that best fits your schedule. Space is limited, so register early to secure your spot before making your travel arrangements.

Food Pantry Donations: Summer visit events are free, but we would like to encourage you to give back to the community if you are able. Please consider making a donation of a personal hygiene or nonperishable food item for each person who attends. All donations will go to the Food Pantry at the University of Iowa and will help to provide food and basic necessities for University of Iowa students, faculty, and staff in need, and to fight food insecurity through education and advocacy. There will be donation collection stations at check-in for this event.

Health and Safety Guidelines

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).
