Events at UNI

Dear UNI Community,

Events hosted at the University of Northern Iowa are always a special experience. To continue offering events throughout the fall semester, we have created guidelines visitors to the university will need to follow.

The Forward Together steering committee has approved the following guidance for campus events this fall, based on recommendations from the Community Outreach and Engagement subcommittee and separate working groups representing athletics and the performing arts.

  • All areas that hold large events will have plans in place for enhanced cleaning and sanitation before and after events.

  • Hand sanitizer stations will be available in key locations throughout the facility and numbered appropriately for the size of expected events.

  • Appropriate personal hygiene products will be made available to staff and performers to maintain their area of use.

  • Face coverings for all staff and guests are required. Face coverings will be available for sale at our venues.

  • Physical distancing guidelines must be followed. Outdoor events that do not allow for physical distancing will not be permitted.

  • Organizers are required to maintain attendance lists for all events. External guests should be provided the web link with UNI requirements for campus visitors in advance. 

  • Congregating inside the venues before or after events is not permitted.

Visit the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center website and the UNI Athletics website for specific information and guidelines related to events at these locations.

As we approach the start of the fall semester, please continue to monitor your email for updates and check the Forward Together website often. Emails such as this one will be archived on the Campus Updates section of the website for future reference.
