Lodging

We provide lodging at MUM's Visitor Center Residence Hall to most prospective students and their parents. There is no charge for lodging and our organic vegetarian meals during our Visitors Weekends.

Arrival and departure times


The Visitors Weekend officially begins Friday night with a welcome dinner at 6:30 pm. The weekend officially ends Monday after lunch around 1:00 pm.

Ground Transportation for arrivals by airplane, train and bus

On the Friday of each Visitors Weekend, ground transportation from the following surrounding airports, train stations and bus stops is available at no charge, provided visitors request this service no later than one week in advance:
  • Cedar Rapids (CID) airport, 
  • Des Moines (DSM) airport, 
  • Mt. Pleasant AMTRAK train station,
  • Ottumwa AMTRAK train station or
  • Fairfield bus stop
To request ground transportation, email your cell phone number and your itinerary to transportation@mum.edu The deadline for requesting ground transportation is at least one week before the Visitors Weekend begins. This means your request and complete itinerary must be received at least by Friday of the week prior to the beginning of the Visitors Weekend.

Ground transportation back to the airports, train stations and bus stop may also be arranged to leave at 1:00 pm on the Monday of each Visitors Weekend. To take advantage of this service, return departures must be at 4:30 pm or later on Monday.

The deadline for requesting ground transportation back to the airport or train station is also at least one week before the Visitors Weekend begins.

For transportation questions, please call 641-919-5513.
