Campus Visits

This is the first version of the 2024–25 General Catalog. Please check back regularly for changes. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

Each year the University of Iowa is the destination for visitors with wide-ranging interests. Prospective and new students and their parents, new faculty and staff members, fans of intercollegiate athletics, University of Iowa health care patients, audiences for the visual and performing arts, museum visitors, and conference and continuing education participants are among those drawn to the campus.

Prospective and new students should contact the Admission Visitors Center if they are interested in a campus visit. The Admission Visitors Center hosts a variety of programs for future students and their families, including large group events and individual visits tailored to specific interests. It is best to visit the campus on weekdays when classes are in session and when other university offices are open. See First Year Visit Options on the Admissions website to arrange for a campus visit.
