The University of Iowa-Incident Form can be used to report all incidents with the exception of incidents within University Hospitals and Clinics, auto accidents or workers compensation claims.

Vehicle Accident Reporting 

All vehicle accidents involving University of Iowa vehicles may be reported online in Employee Self Service or MyUI. UI Risk Management implemented the online Vehicle Accident Reporting to improve both the convenience and efficiency of auto claims. Paper forms will continue to be available in the glove compartment of university vehicles.

Where to find the online tool 

The online reporting tool is in the “Parking and Travel” tab on Employee Self Service or MyUI. Next, select “Vehicle Accident Reporting”, and the online tool will walk you through step-by-step how to report your accident.  

If you would like to view the recording of the Online Accident Reporting presentation please contact Risk Management at
