The Michigan Union at Your Service

This summer, renovations have been wrapping up at South Quad, the new Munger graduate residence is rising higher, and West Quad is closed for a complete renovation.  When you visit campus, you will undoubtedly notice some construction fencing! In the heart of all this exciting activity, the Michigan Union’s operations and hours of service remain in full swing.

Parent to Parent - Staying in Touch

If you'd like to explore the Family Matters archives, you can read advice from other families and parents of Michigan students from our previous editions.  There's nothing like hearing from another Michigan parent about what it's like when a child first leaves home, money management for students, campus safety, and other important topics.

Our Time with Your Student

While students and faculty bear down on the completion of studies, projects and papers, it also is an exciting time. We see great works of individuals and student organizations who manifest all that is energetic and uplifting and inspiring at one of the world’s great teaching and research universities.
