Iowa Memorial Union, Main Lounge
Hancher performances at the Iowa Memorial Union take place in the Main Lounge, which is on the first floor with the main entrance facing Madison Street.
The Iowa Memorial Union is located on the University of Iowa Campus, at the intersection of N Madison St and W Market St.
From I-80 take the N Dubuque St exit going south (towards downtown). At the stoplight at the top of the hill, turn right onto Church St. Church St becomes N Clinton St. Follow N Clinton until the first stoplight – turn right onto E Market St. At the bottom of the hill, turn left onto N Madison St, and Iowa Memorial Union will be on your right.
From downtown Iowa City take N Clinton north (towards I-80), and at the stoplight by the John Pappajohn Business Building, turn left onto E Market St. At the bottom of the hill, turn left onto N Madison St, and the Iowa Memorial Union will be on your right.
There is an hourly parking ramp, the IMU Ramp, directly across from the IMU on N Madison St. There is also an additional hourly ramp, the North Campus Ramp, one block north on N Madison St. Very limited metered street parking is also available.
Hancher performances in the Main Lounge of the Iowa Memorial Union are either standing room only or general admission, depending on the performance. If it is general admission, seating is all on one level in rows, with the stage on a raised platform. The general admission chairs are padded without armrests.
The Iowa Memorial Union Main Lounge is most easily accessible from the entrance located on the east side of the building, and is reached via a 24 foot ramp to a raised plaza. There is a short drop-off area on N Madison St, and four accessible parking spaces are available just south of the building. Accessible parking is also available in the IMU Parking Ramp, located across Madison St to the east.
Restrooms are located just outside of the east entrance to the Main Lounge.
