NDSU Memorial Union

The Memorial Union opened during Homecoming Week in October 1953. A statement of purpose issued in 1954 proclaimed, "It's not just a building, it is also an organization and a program." The Memorial Union has continually been remodeled to keep up with the growth of the student body, and services change to meet students'needs. Operational funding is provided in part by student activity fees. Beginning in 2005, the Memorial Union underwent a large construction project. The building was re-dedicated on Tuesday, October 2, 2007. The structure has undergone a $22 million remodeling project, including the renovation of 124,000 square feet of the previously existing building and an addition of more than 63,000 square feet.

The NDSU Memorial Union Administration and Event Services Office serve the NDSU community by helping plan a successful meeting or event in the Memorial Union. Their focus is to serve campus student organizations and departments by providing excellent customer service, while ensuring a worry free event!
