Fall 2020 Update

Due to COVID-19 concerns, SLS staff will continue to work remotely and all client and intake appointments will be conducted via Zoom. If students need notary services, which will need to be provided in person, students may schedule an appointment. Notary appointments will be held at the SLS office located on the ground floor of the Iowa Memorial Union (IMU) on Wednesday afternoons.
Notary appointments are also available to University of Iowa faculty and staff, but appointments will still be required. There will be no walk-in appointments available at the SLS office.
