Lead Text (required) The Lead Text usually includes some brief introductory text. The introductory text is a great opportunity to include a description of the purpose of the page, with important keywords woven naturally into the content to improve search engine optimization. The title field appears as a sub-heading below the page title and above this text.

Links (optional) may be added at the bottom of the Lead Text section and appear as teal buttons. Multiple links may be added, although it's recommended that they be limited to one or two links.

Our area is serviced by two nearby airports. If you are flying into the area, book your airfare to either the Waterloo Regional Airport (ALO), which offers connecting service from Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD), or to Cedar Rapids Airport (CID) which is 63 miles (99 km) from UNI.

If you are arriving early and need a place to stay, please see Cedar Falls Tourism for accommodation options in Cedar Falls.

(Note: The Country Inn & Suites is only about a 2 minute drive from campus!)


We recommend you park at the UNI Multimodal Transportation Center (1215 W 23rd St, Cedar Falls).  Please enter the parking ramp from the entrance on Merner Ave. You do not need to pay to enter.  You will find visitors stalls marked with yellow strips starting on the 2nd floor with green number signs on the stalls.  We will provide you with a day parking pass for these stalls.  We'll then shuttle you in a golf cart to Maucker Union for setup!
