The new design:

  • refreshes the main entry
  • provides a more prominent welcome desk
  • better sight lines and wayfinding
  • more open and connected student space in the building that has had two large additions and various renovations over 55 years.

Aesthetics and activity level enhance and enliven the Union to provide a unique recruitment tool for new students. Starbucks and Chick-fil-A are retail food service providers in the food court to supplement the existing Subway restaurant.

Improvements to the ground level student spaces included:

  • New mechanical systems
  • Lighting
  • Finishes

The Nebraskan Student Union project also includes:

  • Two new meeting rooms near the main entry to support the wide range of activities that take place at the Union.
  • A collaboration space to serve the variety of activities that take place at the Union, which includes many student organizations.
