Student Booking Policies

While the Union is closed for renovation and fewer meeting and event spaces are available, we’ve adjusted student booking policies at the Michigan League and Pierpont Commons to accommodate student organization needs. If you need any assistance with room bookings, email uueventservices@umich.edu.

These policies are in effect for events occurring Fall and Winter semesters between September 4, 2018 to December 20, 2019. (Standard booking policies apply during Spring and Summer semesters.) Once you have reviewed these policies, reserve your space through EMS, email us at uueventservices@umich.edu or call (734) 764-2000.

SPECIAL NOTE: Another option for holding  your event is Palmer Commons. For additional information, please go to the Palmer Commons website, or contact  the helpful staff via email: palmereventservices@umich.edu or phone: (734) 615-4444.
