Iowa House Hotel
Hawkeye Swing Festival Block!
Call (319) 335-3513
We have someone in charge of housing to help all of our guests from out of town find a host to stay with. Housing fills up quickly and is NOT GUARANTEED. We do this as a favor and try our best to accommodate all of those who can't afford to stay at a hotel. We try to reserve this for those who truly need it!
Housing will only be provided for those registering for a full weekend pass. You must register for your weekend pass before you can be added to the housing list. The request information is filled out during the registration process.
