University of Iowa


Thank you for your interest in volunteering during the 2018 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 live: volunteer now!

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 are available in the Office of the Vice President for Student Life, 249 IMU, 8:00am-5:30pm, 8/9-8/17. 

  • 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.
