Self-isolation and quarantine

Due to the size of the incoming class, the University of Iowa will have limited space available in the Iowa House Hotel for students wishing to isolate or quarantine due to COVID-19.

Students who live off campus and need to isolate or quarantine, should follow the latest guidance from the CDC.

Medical care will be provided virtually by Student Health, the provider who made the diagnosis, or the student’s personal primary care provider.
