Canceled MU Events & Closures

The Memorial Union will continue to update this page as events are canceled or postponed due to COVID-19.
Updated 3.17.20
Memorial Union Closed

In an effort to prioritize the safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors amid ongoing concerns about COVID-19, the Memorial Union will close at 7pm today, March 17, 2020, and will remain closed to the public until further notice. 

This means there will be no public access to any spaces, departments, or offices in the MU.

The parking ramp will remain open, although there will be no access to the building from the ramp.

The Memorial Union has always been the living room of the Iowa State campus. So during this closure, we will be doing our best to deliver some of your favorite parts of the MU to your own living room.

Stay tuned, stay safe, stay positive, stay informed. The building is closed but our hearts are open, and we'll continue to do what we can to take care of you, our MU community.
