Event Spaces

One Union. Two Buildings. Endless Possibilities.

 


The Wisconsin Union offers two unique buildings to fit your event needs—Memorial Union and Union South. Both buildings offer rooms with custom arrangements that allow you to host your special event in our buildings. 

We can also assist you with events in other buildings across campus or in Madison and beyond.   

Meetings, conferences, weddings, receptions and more can all be seamlessly created with the professional planning support of our Campus Event Services team.
