Future of Learning @ Iowa: Student clubs and organizations

In this video, Jamarco Clark, director of Leadership and Engagement in the Office of the Dean of Students, explains how student clubs and organizations adapted to COVID-19 and what benefits will remain when campus returns to in-person learning in the fall.

Get vaccinated now


The American College Health Association recommends students get vaccinated as soon as possible.

Thanks to increased supply from Johnson County, Student Health is now able to begin providing a second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to students regardless of where they received their first dose. Doses must still be three weeks apart, but this gives students more flexibility and may be more convenient. If students need a second dose of Moderna, they should call Student Health at 319-335-9704

Students can schedule their appointment by signing in to MyUI using their HawkID.

If students want to get their first dose on campus through Student Health and their second dose elsewhere, they should check with a provider in their home county and state to ensure availability. Then get vaccinated as soon as possible.


Employees who wish to be vaccinated by the University Employee Health Clinic must first complete a COVID-19 immunization survey in your ReadySet employee health record. This brief survey of your medical history, similar to the survey required for the flu vaccine, is required to become vaccinated and triggers the process to self-schedule the vaccination appointment.

We urge you to complete the appropriate immunization survey and get vaccinated as soon as you can.

Campus operations

The university continues to monitor self-reported COVID-19 testing data on campus, while also tracking state, region, and national COVID-19 infection rates.

University of Iowa seven-day rolling average

University of Iowa self-reported COVID-19 testing

These data reflect new cases since April 23, 2021.

The University of Iowa has published an updated snapshot of self-reported positive COVID-19 tests from faculty, staff, and students.

Number of self-reported cases of COVID-19


  • New cases: 9
  • Total cases: 3,173


  • New cases: 3
  • Total cases: 489

These numbers reflect only self-reported positive or presumed positive COVID-19 tests from UI faculty, staff, and students on the academic campus since Aug. 18, 2020. These data will not match data reported by UI Hospitals & Clinics or by the Iowa Department of Public Health for several reasons, including different testing time intervals and geographic scope. Students who also are employees of the university are only reported in the student number to avoid double counting. The UI has more than 30,000 students and nearly 30,000 employees. Many employees continue to work remotely but have self-reported to authorize sick leave.

Number of residence hall students in quarantine: 0*

Number of residence hall students in self-isolation: 7**

*Quarantine: Quarantine is used to keep someone who might have been exposed to COVID-19 away from others.

**Self-isolation: Isolation is used to separate people infected.
