It’s an exciting time to be a Hawkeye and to witness the campus transformation that will take place beginning in 2023. As part of the University of Iowa’s 10-year facilities master plan, projects will include state-of-the-art buildings, equipment, learning spaces, and other amenities.

Some work already is underway on the west side of campus, where other projects await that will help the university deliver on its missions of educating Iowa students and caring for Iowa patients.

The progress will cause some short-term disruption for students, faculty, staff, patients, and visitors, but the long-term benefits of growth and modernization will position the university for continued success.

“As with any major construction project, we will put a high priority on minimizing the impact for our campus community, patients, and visitors,” says Rod Lehnertz, senior vice president for finance and operations and university architect. “These temporary inconveniences are enabling an exciting campus transformation that will benefit generations to come.”
