Because your health and wellness are important to us, Iowa State University has developed Cyclones Care, a short list of ways to keep you and those around you as safe as possible. Face coverings are encouraged at all Destination Iowa State events. Frequent handwashing and monitoring your own wellness are also essential to a healthy and fun event!

Note: Destination Iowa State is a student-only event. We suggest guests or family members visit campus on another date to spend time with their student.


Parking is limited on campus. We encourage you to park in the Memorial Union Parking Ramp attached to the Memorial Union for a modest hourly rate.

The fare-free CyRide Orange Route 23 picks up from the commuter lot and stops at the north entrance of the Memorial Union. Download the MyState app for CyRide details.
