Are You Concerned for Your Cyclone?

If you are concerned for your student, please contact the Dean of Students Office. The Dean of Students Office provides consultation, resources, outreach, and coordination of information to address concerns for students in a sensitive and holistic manner. We want to partner with you in your student’s Iowa State experience, but please recognize we may not always be able to share information back to you unless your student authorizes us to do so. Contact our office at 515-294-1020 or visit our website for more information about our services.


For emergencies and urgent concerns after hours, please contact Iowa State Police at 515-294-4428.
