The University of Iowa


Thank you for your interest in volunteering during the 2019 On Iowa! program. Volunteers are an essential element in producing a successful program to welcome new students into our University community and family. 

Volunteer Contact Information

Our volunteer site is now closed. 


An On Iowa! volunteer shirt will be given to all new volunteers at no charge; this design is the same as last year if you already have one.  Shirts will be available in the Office of the Vice President for Student Life, 249 IMU, 8:00am-5:30pm, 8/12-8/23. 

  • We can accommodate only individuals who have been confirmed to volunteer.  We will not be able to accommodate volunteer family members, minors and pets.
  • Please dress comfortably (tennis shoes, shorts, etc.) and wear your On Iowa! volunteer t-shirt.
  • Wearing a name tag or office button is encouraged.
  • Please leave valuables at home (there is not a place to put purses, backpacks, etc.).
  • Volunteers are encouraged to bring a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated throughout their shift.
  • We encourage volunteers to wear sunscreen if you are working a shift during peak sun hours.
  • Once your volunteer shift is over, we ask that you exit the volunteer event.
  • Additional volunteer training will be provided on-site at the volunteer events.
