Welcome to Your UWM Student Union


“Something is definitely happening.” E.T. The Extra Terrestrial

Are we there yet? We can only describe this time as the “So close, yet so far” phase of the UWM Student Union renovation and Fall 2023 cannot come soon enough! There is great excitement about our renovated spaces and updated amenities, such as the Centers for Advocacy and Student Engagement (CASE), 3rd Floor Lounge, Wisconsin Room, and the Student Involvement Wing.  Other spaces are still waiting to undergo demolition and renovation as we race through the spring and leap into the summer. We know this has been, and continues to be, a strange year in the UWM Student Union. It feels like we are “living” in a construction zone where exciting new spaces, hallways, and beautiful sunlight are often found adjacent to unpacked furniture, construction materials, plastic walls, and caution tape. It’s safe to say we are experiencing a transitional, if not transformational, year.

Stay tuned to our What’s Happening page to see the changes updated every week!

Stay up to date on the locations of any displaced services and visit the Space Relocations page.

Check out the overall project and general timeline on the Union’s Renovation website.

As always, the Union staff remain committed to accommodating our students, departments, and community as much as possible during this transitional year.
