Meeting and Event Planning

Welcome!

We appreciate your interest in University Unions at the University of Michigan. Our three facilities offer a wide range of spaces, services and resources that will accommodate most any meeting or event need. The Michigan League and Michigan Union, on Central Campus, offer our clients a tradition of excellence established over 100 years ago and continuing to this day.  Pierpont Commons offers a more contemporary facility with  international flair in the heart of North Campus. Whichever location suits your needs, we will provide you and your guests  superb food and attentive service.
