The Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City provides support and comfortable accommodations for families so they can stay close to their child receiving medical treatment.
To be eligible to stay, families must live at least 20 miles away and have a child age 21 or younger in medical care. Once a guest, families may stay until their child is discharged from the hospital. Because of this, we cannot guarantee room reservations in advance as families do not always know when they will be leaving. In lieu of room reservations, families are placed on our Wait List until a room becomes available.
Since our House is often full, we also partner with local hotels to provide discounted rates to families on the current day’s wait list.
Ronald McDonald House is located on the University of Iowa’s smoke-free campus. Tobacco use, including vaping, is not permitted in the building or outside on the grounds. Guests who wish to smoke or vape will need to walk approximately three blocks to find a permitted location.
