Does Family Weekend have hotel rooms blocked for the families of new students?

No, Family Weekend does not black off hotel rooms for the families of new students. You can call the Iowa City/Coralville Convention and Visitors Bureau at 319-337-6592 or visit their lodging page for updated information regarding hotel availability. Some Iowa City and Coralville hotels require a two-night stay on football weekends, and the room rates are typically higher on non-football game weekends.
