Memorial Union opened its doors in 1928. With the first comprehensive building renovation now complete, we’re celebrating the impact that the people and programs associated with Memorial Union have had on campus over the past 90 years. With a strong tradition of student-led programming and governance, the events and activities that develop within these walls remain relevant to the ever-changing expectations of our diverse student body.

The Wisconsin Union, the organization behind the union buildings, has connected students, faculty, staff, members and visitors through shared cultural, social and recreational experiences since it formed in 1907.
