The Iowa Grotto meets monthly at Trowbridge Hall on the campus of the University of Iowa, in Iowa City, Iowa at 7:30 p.m., in room 125, or thereabouts, on the 1st floor.

Meetings are held the 4th Wednesday of the month, except during November and December, when they are held on the 3rd Wednesday to avoid conflict with the holidays. In addition to regular business, a presentation usually follows each meeting.

Trowbridge Hall is located on the east side of campus (east of the Iowa River) on Market Street. From Interstate-80 take the Dubuque Street exit (exit #244) and head south. Follow Dubuque Street until the intersection of Market Street and turn west. Parking is available in the Iowa Memorial Union Parking Ramp located behind Trowbridge Hall on Madison Street. Both Trowbridge Hall and the IMU ramp are accessible/usable for disabled visitors.
