UI Box Office Moves To Temporary IMU Quarters

The University of Iowa box office will move to temporary quarters in the basement of the Iowa Memorial Union to accommodate the building's ongoing renovation.

The box office will move to the Wheelroom on the north end of the IMU basement as of Wednesday, July 19. It will return to its permanent location on the main floor later in the year, as renovation progresses.

The UI box office sells tickets for events held on campus sponsored by various student and university organizations, including the Bijou Theatre, Athletic Department, SCOPE, Lecture Committee and the UI Dance Department. The box office is also a Ticketmaster outlet and sells tickets to Ticketmaster events throughout the country.

The IMU is in the midst of a $9.9 million renovation that will create a more inviting, functional and attractive union for the university, as well as add 13,000 square feet of additional student activity space. Renovations are expected to be completed in December.
