U-M Regents approve design for extensive Michigan Union renovation

University of Michigan Union

Plans to renovate the iconic, 97-year-old Michigan Union took another step forward Thursday as the University of Michigan Board of Regents approved the schematic design. The $85.2 million project will enhance student social space on the main level by expanding lounge and study spaces. It also will create state-of-the-art student organization and student involvement space, improve space for counseling and student support services and enhance meeting space near the Rogel Ballroom.
