With a wealth of services, dining options, and gathering space, Pierpont Commons serves as the Union of north campus. Built in 1965, the goal of Pierpont Commons was to help build the community on North Campus under the guidance of Wilber K. Pierpont.
The basement floor of Pierpont Commons offers many services including the Cain Lab, Wellness Zone, and University of Michigan Police Department. There are also some food options on this floor as well, including Ahmo’s, Panda Express, and Hibachi-San. On the main floor, you can access Fireside Cafe, Blue Market, Barnes & Noble bookstore, U-M Credit Union, and ATMs. All of these shops and services, and their hours, can be found on Pierpont Common’s website.
In addition to the food and services within Pierpont Commons, it also offers many great study spots, which are conveniently close to the Duderstadt Library (which is connected to Pierpont Commons). There are also many computers and printers available within the building available for student use. The building is very beautiful with an abundance of natural lighting and flags from all over the world on display.
