University Business Manager

Real Estate Management
(Property Leasing, Acquisition, and Sale)

  • The Business Manager oversees all leases, easements and real estate transactions at the University. By State law, most leases, easements and real estate transactions (acquisitions, gifts, transfers and sales) must be approved by the Board of Regents. View the Board of Regent's Policy on real estate transactions. The Business Manager's Office generally prepares all leases and amendments along with coordinating actions that require approval from the Board of Regents.

  • If you are interested in leasing property off campus and you have a source of funds, you need to first obtain approval from your Departmental Head/Dean. After that you need to contact Linda Annis to obtain more information regarding the procedure and time frame for identifying possible leased space.

  • If you have questions on gifting a property, please view http://controller.fo.uiowa.edu/real-property-gift-policy.

  • If you own real property that is adjacent to campus boundaries and are interested in the selling of the property, please contact David Kieft or Linda Annis at the Business Manager's Office to discuss the University's current real estate acquisition criteria.

  • Any faculty/staff request for on campus space should be directed to the Facilities Management Space Planning Officer, Diane Machatka and not the Business Manager's Office.

  • If you have a question regarding a University-owned property that is located in a residential district, please contact Linda Annis or Cathy Fountain.
