OSC provides professional photography that supports our institutional communication goals. This can include imagery focused on noteworthy campus events and news, recruitment, advancement, and outreach.

Portrait studio

Fall studio hours 

Note: Closed week of Thanksgiving (11/25-11/29)

Mondays, 12-2 PM
Thursdays, 1-3 PM

We offer walk-in portraits (professional headshots) for university faculty, staff, and students free of charge. No appointment is necessary. The studio is not large enough to accommodate group photos. 

The studio is located on the third floor of Plaza Centre One on the Ped Mall in downtown Iowa City, room 369. Take the elevator up to the third floor to find room 369 in the NW corner of the hallway.

The photo studio operates on a first-come, first-served basis. Images will be sent via email and stored in the OSC digital archives.

The studio is staffed and operated by University of Iowa students. As their academic schedule takes precedence, the studio may close to accommodate their needs - even during the open hours listed above. We recommend that those with a time sensitive need for portraits visit the studio well in advance.

Photo libraries

University of Iowa images are available for non-commercial download and use by the general public at the University of Iowa on Flickr.
