Summer Renovations

With the arrival of May, construction activity near the Michigan Union will increase. In addition to the activity at South Quad, which will continue through the summer, West Quad will close for a deep renovation over the next 15 months. The perimeter around West Quad will be fenced, including sidewalks adjacent to the building.

Traveling Safely

One of the many items on your checklists before going abroad should be purchasing the required travel insurance and making sure you are able to stay safe and healthy while being away from home. Through the University of Michigan, you can purchase overseas medical insurance, whether you are traveling with a University program, an outside program, or just for leisure. The plan is cheap and can ensure that you are covered in case of an emergency or health situation while you’re abroad.
