IIHR Webcams

IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering is a world-renowned center for fluids-centered research, education, and public service. Based in the C. Maxwell Stanley Hydraulics Laboratory on the banks of the Iowa River, IIHR is a unit of the University of Iowa’s College of Engineering. Students and researchers come to IIHR from around the world to benefit from the center’s comprehensive multidisciplinary approach, which includes lab experiments, computational approaches, and observational field research.

IIHR’s webcams capture live views of the campus and the beautiful Iowa River, which is central to city and university life. You may even spot an eagle during the winter months when they congregate near the dam just outside the Stanley Hydraulics Lab!
