University Student Union

Student Union

Originally built in 1973 for $2.8 million in 1974, the University Student Union is the center of student activity. The Union is three levels and houses numerous meeting rooms including the Volstorff Ballroom, several places to study or hang out with friends, the University Bookstore, Information Exchange, several eating establishments and student government offices.

The main level, or “Main Street” of The Union has several computer kiosks and printers. Also located on “Main Street” is Information Exchange. This is a great spot to ask a quick question, buy concert tickets, cash a check and even check out laptops.

In 2004, it underwent a $10 million renovation and expansion that elevated it to a state-of-the-art facility. The union expanded in 2010 to include an additional meeting room, a permanent display for the Bummobile and other Hobo Day memorabilia and two new eateries.
