Group Visits

Looking for a great educational opportunity for your students, organization, or club? If you have a group of ten or more students ninth grade or above*, we invite you to schedule a group visit to bring them to Iowa State University! Providing excellent customer service, visitor relations, and university information is a goal of the Campus Visits Team. We strive to provide a custom visit for each group, and we will work with you to make sure your visit to campus is a memorable one!

Visit Program

We will work with you to schedule a great visit day that might include a campus tour, residence hall tour, presentations, or other appropriate activities. The group visit will be tailored to fit the needs of the group.


Groups have a variety of meal choices available! Options include eating in one of our buffet style dining centers, the Memorial Union Food Court, bringing your own sacked lunches, or enjoying a nearby restaurant.
