Mediacom Outdoor Club

The Mediacom Outdoor Club is an indoor space located directly behind the Outdoor Club stadium seating, spanning the entire length of the playing field. The east side of the building includes a wall of windows that allows for a spectacular view of The Iowa Hawkeye Football playing field and The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. The west side of the building includes a wall of windows that provides a view of the Hansen Football Performance Center. The 3,600 square foot, centrally located space, boasts a 20' ceiling, making it an ideal space for banquets, receptions, wedding ceremonies and receptions, holiday parties, business functions, and other social gatherings. The corridors, extending to the north and south, provide an additional square footage allowing for some creativity in the planning process.
