Carver–Hawkeye Arena is a 15,400-seat multi-purpose indoor arena located in Iowa City, Iowa. Opened in 1983, it is the home court for The University of Iowa Hawkeyes men's and women's basketball teams.
Across the river from North Hall is 100 Kuhl House, home, since 1997, tothe University of Iowa Press. Built of limestone from the river cliffs in the area, it is one of the oldest buildings in Iowa City. Inside are shelves upon shelves of the books director James McCoy and his talented staff have published. I am, of course, partial to the poetry series, which includes writing by some of the best poets around: Michele Glazer, Robyn Schiff, Emily Wilson, Susan Wheeler, and Cole Swensen, among them. The Sightline Books series in nonfiction is also remarkable. We at Prairie Lights are waiting with bated breath for July 25 when Carl Klaus and Ned Stuckey-French are scheduled to read from their stunning newly released collection, Essayists on the Essay.

Now demolished, the Quadrangle Residence Hall was an example of Collegiate Gothic, as are most of the other early buildings west of the river. Originally a closed quadrangle with four entry pavilions — one in the middle of each side — it was reduced to about two-thirds its original size when the disused northeast quadrant was razed in 1975.
