Admissions creates web page for Orientation visitors; parking still at Hancher for June 11-12 program

The UI Office of Admissions has developed a web page to keep Orientation program visitors apprised of changing road conditions that could impact parking and driving directions.

Due to the closure of Dubuque Street, visitors attending the June 11-12 University of Iowa Orientation Program are advised to follow revised driving directions to campus if they will be coming in from Interstate 80. The revised directions can be found on the new Web page at .

In addition, floodwaters are threatening the Hancher Auditorium parking lot, where Orientation visitors were told to park in their confirmation materials. As of 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, June 10, the Hancher Parking Lot was not closed. However, Orientation visitors should check the Admissions flood-update web page regularly as road conditions are changing rapidly. Visitors may also want to build additional drive time into their arrival plans.
