Safety and Support

Every Hawkeye—students, faculty, staff, and other members of our community—can only thrive in a safe and inclusive environment. 

When you choose a university, you're choosing more than a place to study. You're choosing a home. We're here to help you feel welcome, safe, and supported both in and out of the classroom while you're on campus. 

We're continuously looking for new ways to remain one of America's safest college campuses. Our community members, programs, and the institutional resources below have play a vital role in that effort. If there's any way we can help support your well-being while at Iowa, we want to hear from you.
