There's usually a bike rack on the west side of the Obermann Center, but it was removed during construction of the new Nonfiction Writing building. We hope that it will return in Spring 2023.
Free street parking is available in the near northside neighborhood.
There are two CAMBUS stops near the Obermann Center on Church St.: Stop 1010 (Red Route; Hawkeye Interdorm) and Stop 1011 (Blue Route; Hawkeye Interdorm). The closest Iowa City bus stop is at Clinton St. and Jefferson St. (North Dodge Route).

As we re-open to events, the Obermann Center will be following the University of Iowa requirements for in-person events. Visitors to the Obermann Center are encouraged to follow UI COVID Prevention Guidelines. As a UI unit, we cannot require masks, but please know that we welcome them. Visit Johnson County's Coronavirus Information Hub for current COVID community levels and resources.
In case of medical emergency:
There is an automated external defibrillator (AED) mounted on the wall in the first-floor restroom anyone may use to help those experiencing cardiac arrest. Learn more about AEDs. There is also a first-aid kit in the kitchen cabinet above the electric hot water kettle.
In case of emergency, call 911.
We often consult and refer others to the Accessible & Inclusive Events Resource Guide created by the University of Michigan's Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for general information about planning accessible and inclusive events and meetings.
