ACTIVE: Student Union Updates

Student Union

Purpose

With so many changes on campus, the Union is no exception. There are exciting and helpful recent and upcoming changes that make visiting the Union as part of your daily and nightly routine, the thing to do. The biggest and most impactful upcoming change for the Union is it will be OPEN 24/7 starting in Fall 2022. With this exciting change, there will be some new reasons to visit the Union in the middle of the night including a 24-hour convenience store.

Changes to the food court are coming as well. Subway will be moving out into the food court and Sushi Blu will be moving across the food court. In Sushi Blu’s original location, there will be a brand-new event and informational concierge desk during the day and a security station for late-night security assistance. Sushi Blu will take the place of Tossed and the current Tossed venue will be expanded and will move over to be a part of the newly updated Pat Case Dining Center in Fisher Hall. Tossed will continue to be a part of the mobile order options. When your Tossed order is ready you will be able to pick up your salad in the refrigerator locker located at Pat Case.

But wait . . . there’s more exciting news! The University Bookstore is temporarily returning to the Union and will take the place of the Pat Case Dining Center in the Union. Now you will have all the convenience of the bookstore and its clothing, gifts, and supplies back in an accessible location.

We are upgrading the building too! We added Amazon Lockers to the east side of the South Patio, and over the summer we will be enhancing the patio with porch swings and other features to make life on the patio more inviting. All the first-floor food court booths will be redone this summer and bring with it a touch of blue.

Come visit the UNION, it will excite you!

ACTIVE: StarRez

Purpose

Enhanced campus housing assignment system(StarRez). StarRez allows not only Housing, but many of the Campus Services areas to offer a simplified, singular solution. Before StarRez, we were balancing 4 different software applications to offer our students and staff needs. With the purchase of StarRez, Campus Services staff have more time to focus on solving student’s needs, while also offering the students a more seamless approach to their housing and parking needs.

StarRez allows Campus Services to provide direct integration for multiple offices across campus such as Admissions, Bursars, Student Life, and more!

ACTIVE: Sorority Housing

In Summer 2022, we are continuing with our improvements that started with all new lighting in the Summer of 2019. This summer we will be updating all 6 Sorority Houses with a refreshing new palette, as well as adding carpet to their common areas too! The houses will choose their professionally-designed finishes and all the houses will be completed before they return in the fall.

PLANNING: Student Union & Hurricane Hut

505Architects logo

Purpose

The University plans to transform the Union to be more student-centric. With all the plans for the Union for Fall 2022, including being open 24/7, with a 24/7 convenience store, and the bookstore returning to campus (in the Union temporarily until its new home is complete), THESE ARE JUST THE BEGINNING.

The University is working with students and architects to prepare plans that will transform the second floor of the Union into the ultimate student gathering spot for individual study, group study, large events, and some seriously fun study breaks! And it doesn’t stop with the second floor, because we are also preparing for an EPIC RETURN of the HURRICANE HUT. Once the bookstore is settled into its new location, the Hurricane Hut will take its new, improved, and a rightful spot at the heart of the campus . . . the UNION.
