For Admitted Students

Welcome to the Workshop! We will send you a letter by mail containing all the information you'll need before you arrive in Iowa City.

You will also receive a letter from the Office of Graduate Admissions, with information about how to create your HawkID and password, which you can use to access most online services at the University of Iowa. 

Once you have your HawkID, you can also log-in to the Writers' Workshop wiki, which contains helpful information about living in Iowa City and studying at the Workshop. 

Stop by the Workshop office when you arrive – we look forward to meeting you. In the meantime, here are some other resources that might be useful to you, as you make your plans:
