Michigan Union Reopening Celebration

Welcome Back!

The Michigan Union is set to open its doors on January 13, 2020. The occasion will be marked with a reopening celebration with remarks from key leaders, performances and an open house.

The $85.2 million renovation — designed to help the university meet the needs of current and future students — honors the historic architectural and integrity of the Union and includes:

-significant infrastructure and technology upgrades

-enhanced program and social space

-expanded meeting options

-a newly created IdeaHub, state-of-the-art student organization space.

-deep infrastructure renewal including life safety, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing system improvements

-elevator replacements and upgrades

-replacement of the roof and restoration and replacement of windows

-restroom upgrades.

The Michigan Union’s North Entrance also was redesigned to become a more welcoming, open and light-infused entrance with an enclosed ramp.

From the input of the earliest student committees to the contractors and construction crews to the staff who smoothly transitioned the space, it was a community monumental effort with results we will cherish for years to come.

See you on January 13, 2020!
