Welcome to the University of Iowa

Your first year at the University of Iowa starts right now! Sure, you won’t begin classes until August, but what you do between now and then will lay the foundation for your whole Iowa experience. We want you to get involved—and to feel like part of the Hawkeye family—right from the start.

This site offers essential information for every newly admitted student, plus a guide to the resources that will help you succeed once you get to campus. It also connects you with everything you need to know about Orientation and On Iowa!—the required summer programs for new Hawkeyes.

We’re adding info all the time, so make this site your go-to resource as you make your transition to Iowa.
