About the Renovation

As the population of the Iowa State student community continues to grow, so does the need for students to have additional space to connect, collaborate, and form community.  The Memorial Union was founded on the idea of creating a central connection point for students and ever since its doors first opened in 1928, the building has come to be known as the heart of campus. Because of that, Iowa State wants to make the Memorial Union even better for the thousands of students that walk through its halls every day. We want to make this building about you, the student, and provide you with a more efficient, modern space so that you can create your own, unique Iowa State experience.

Benefits of the Renovation for the Student Body

  • Increased dining and lounge space

  • Increased space for student organizations and leadership opportunities

  • Larger meeting rooms and flexible collaboration spaces

  • Increased multicultural services and programs

  • Improved building navigation

  • Updated technology, including charging stations on every floor

  • Revamped recreation space

In addition to all of those benefits listed above, the renovation project will also address infrastructure and maintenance issues throughout the whole building and will insure that the Memorial Union remains the heart of campus for future generations. It's your Union and we want to make it better. Support a student fee increase to renovate and expand the MU by voting on the Student Government Ballot March 7 & 8.
