Lifelong Connections Start Here
Membership means a lot at the Wisconsin Union. It's the beginning of a lifelong connection to the heart and soul of the University, and it supports all the things people love about the Union—arts and culture, adventure, special guest lectures, film, music and more. Because the Union is a completely self-supporting organization operating without any tax dollar support, membership ensures everything that makes the Union special can be enjoyed for years to come.
Your voice as a member is represented by the Wisconsin Union Association. Together with Union staff, the Association board works tirelessly each day to make experiences for a lifetime possible.
Take your place in Wisconsin Union history by joining over 110,000 Wisconsin Union members worldwide.
