Union renovation to begin in summer

A major renovation to the University Union will begin in May that will relocate a number of student-centered services to the building, as well as create a Marketplace dining and gathering area unlike any other on campus.

“We’ll be creating an arrival space,” said Brian Rose, vice president for student affairs. “The entrance will immediately provide a kind of wayfinding area and welcoming space where people can sit and meet. We’re trying to develop the building as a real crossroads with lots of activity day and night, so students will spend more time there because they like the space.”

The Center for Civic Engagement will occupy the front corner of the first floor, which will be built out from the current entrance, and the Career Development Center will be located on both sides of the hall.
