The Buildings of University Unions

University Unions


As part of University Unions, the Michigan Union is dedicated to providing the right combination of state of the art facilities with conveniences while preserving the unique historical setting that enhances the student experience at the University of Michigan. Over the years, students have developed strong connections to student organizational experiences held within the Union, social events they have attended here or the stately Michigan Union building itself. University Unions continues to seek additional financial support in order to provide high quality resources in each of our buildings for students' lives beyond the classroom.
