Hawk Alert test to take place Monday, Sept. 16 at 10 a.m.

The University of Iowa Department of Public Safety will test the Hawk Alert emergency notification system at approximately 10 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 16.

Tests of our campus emergency notification system are required by the Clery Act, and are necessary to evaluate the university's ability to issue timely notifications when there are immediate threats to physical safety in emergency situations.

A message about the first home football game

Hey Hawkeyes!

Like many of you, we are excited that the 2018 football season begins this Saturday. Students play a valuable role in the tradition of Hawkeye football, both as players on the field and fans in the stadium. Respect for others is a key component of The IOWA Challenge which calls on us to be good neighbors and make Iowa City a great place to live.  

Update on Aug. 24 Hawk Alert

Last night at 11:29 p.m., the University of Iowa Police Department received a call from a person on campus who reported seeing a male subject carrying a gun near the pharmacy building.

Police from multiple agencies responded immediately to the area and located the subject. After further investigation, police determined the individual had been misidentified as handling a gun. No crime was committed, and no arrests were made.
