Welcome to Your UWM Student Union

Construction in the Student Union continues at a furious pace.  This summer has brought amazing progress from our partners at Findorff Construction and HGA Architects, along with some delays. 

UWM Campus Planning and Student Union leadership have prioritized service and support of our students throughout this project, with plans for the building to reopen for general use in time for the start of the fall semester. Our highest priority is serving the basic needs of students like safety, dining, and services that facilitate our primary educational mission.The Union is currently completing our final tests and inspections to open our doors on Friday, September 2nd, with dining units beginning their services on Tuesday, September 6th. The Panther Shop, Books by eCampus, UWM Tech Store, and PantherCard Office will operate from Bolton Hall August 29th through September 1st, reopening in the Union on Friday, September 2nd. 

We have one more year of active construction in the Union before this project will reach its completion, so there will be usable and non-usable spaces in the facility.  Union staff remain committed to accommodating our students, departments, and community as much as possible during this transitional year. 

For a more detailed look at the UWM Student Union Renovation, and the locations of any displaced services please visit the What’s Happening and Space Relocations pages within the Union’s Renovation website.
