The College of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State University has experienced significant structural growth in the last five years. We continue to renovate our hospital to provide quality healthcare to the public and our college to ensure an exceptional education to our students. Tours of the college are provided by the Veterinary Ambassadors, students who are enrolled in the professional curriculum. All visitors must submit a tour request at least 5 working days prior to the requested tour date (see directions for sending request below). Maximum tour size is 10 visitors (no exceptions will be made). We are unable to accommodate “walk-in” visitors.
