The Union Recreation Center offers lane/table rental services for students, campus departments, and the Milwaukee community.

During fall and spring semesters, bowling lanes can be reserved after 6pm on weeknights and after 12pm on weekends.

During the summer our center is closed, but we are usually able to accomodate reservations by request. Please contact our Program Manager for more information.
