Welcome to the Michigan Union


Welcome to the Michigan Union, one of the most beloved buildings on Central Campus. Impressive in stature and alive with activity, enter the Michigan Union and you’ll find yourself immediately immersed in the Go Blue! culture. The Michigan Union houses study and meeting spaces, six eateries, shops and student services. And it’s home to the IdeaHub for student organizations, run by the Center for Campus Involvement. While you’re here, be sure to stroll through the historic halls, enjoy the beautifully restored architectural details and imagine all the Wolverines who have come through the doors.
