We're in this together.

The University of Iowa is taking deliberate steps to reduce the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus for our students, faculty, and staff, as well as our surrounding community. 

On-campus expectations

  • Follow the campus health and safety guidelines
  • Stay home if you develop any symptom(s) consistent with COVID-19.
  • Familiarize yourself with these guidelines if you test positive, or are identified as a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Main campus meeting and event guidance

The UI will continue to rely on guidance from the Board of Regents, State of Iowa; the Iowa and Johnson County departments of public health (IDPH, JCPH); the Big Ten Conference; and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


  • While university meetings may take place face-to-face, the university is prioritizing all spaces for instruction. To accomplish that goal, meeting conveners should continue to avoid conflicts in scheduling. *Excludes UI Health Care.

Technology considerations

  • Meetings with a virtual component will use appropriate technology to ensure inclusivity and allow full engagement by remote participants.
  • For effective virtual and hybrid meetings, meeting rooms should be equipped with appropriate technology and leaders and participants should be able to use the technologies needed effectively.



  • Individuals should work with building coordinators or utilize space reservation systems to reserve event space.
  • The University of Iowa strongly encourages faculty, staff, students and visitors to get vaccinated.
