Welcome to the Memorial Union
As the “hub” of student activity at the University, the Memorial Union is a key element of campus life. Regarded as the gathering place for the campus community, the Memorial Union is home to programs, services, facilities and people that serve students, faculty, staff, alumni, visitors, and the surrounding community.
Dedicated June 13, 1953, the Memorial Union underwent major renovations in 2001 to its meeting rooms, bookstore, food venue, and lounges. The Memorial Union is a tribute to the University of Maine’s men and women who served in World War II and a memorial to the 181 men who gave their lives in the war. The Memorial Room in the Union is dedicated to their service and to the memory of those who served. The Union includes the Career Center, Faculty Development Center, Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, Commuter and Nontraditional Student Programs, Computer Connection, Information Center, Alcohol and Drug Education Programs, Multicultural Programs, Rainbow Resource Center, Student Service Center, University Book Store, Post Office, E-Mail Lounge, Residence Life, and Student Affairs.
The Memorial Union also houses the Maine Campus (student newspaper), WMEB-FM (campus radio station), Spirit Room, the Wade Center for Student Leadership, and the University Credit Union (UCU).
