10-year facilities master plan description

In January 2022, the Iowa Board of Regents granted the University of Iowa approval to proceed with planning the next 10 years of facilities construction and upgrades to modernize and improve campus. The 10-year facilities master plan is an evolving framework built on the university's core missions to improve student success and patient care to Iowans.

The 10-Year Facilities Master Plan will improve student success outcomes by returning academics to the heart of campus and modernizing academic spaces for popular and high-ranked programs. The 10-Year Facilities Master plan is also focused on improving the delivery of world-class health care to Iowans by creating new hospital and clinic spaces and modernizing health science education facilities. The planned revitalization will significantly reduce the deferred maintenance backlog on campus.
