University Unions


Through programs, services, and spaces, University Unions is a catalyst for connection and learning that cultivates community and belonging at the University of Michigan and beyond. The Michigan Union, Michigan League and Pierpont Commons are spaces that welcome you to experience the warmth, history, diversity and vibrancy of campus culture. They are spaces that bring students, faculty, staff and the community together to connect, learn and thrive. The Unions also provide conveniences such as dining, retail, and student service departments.


Conference & Event Services

University Unions also works closely with Conference & Event Services. Whether you are planning a student organization meeting or a grand event such as a wedding, Conferences & Event Services can help. They will assist you in reserving space to accommodate the size and type of event. You may even request that your event be catered by Michigan Catering which could be simply snacks and wolverine punch or a full three-course meal.
