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.
Why Give to the Michigan Union?

Michigan Union Renovation
Our Michigan home will undergo an extensive renovation beginning in mid-2018. Significant areas of focus for this project—all of which could be enhanced with your financial support—include:
Creating student organization and student involvement spaces to encourage greater collaboration in a highly complex global society.
Improving visibility and accessibility throughout the building to ensure the Union is a welcoming place for everyone.
Updating space for counseling and student support services to ensure the Michigan Union is a central campus location for enriching students’ educational experiences.
Restoring original architectural features to enhance vibrancy on the first floor.
With student enrollment at an all-time high at the University of Michigan, and the ever-growing need for spaces that encourage innovation from students interacting with peers from all academic disciplines, this renovation could not come at a more vital time. You can discover more about the renovation project at recunionrenovations.umich.edu.
Please donate today to support the future of the Michigan Union. Your contribution will leave a lasting impression on the renovation project for this historic campus building.
