The MU Renewal project is nearing completion. This comprehensive renovation takes the historic Memorial Union and brings it to life again as a dynamic on-campus destination for students and others in the UC Davis community. The project maintained the integrity of the Memorial Union as a historic facility, reinforcing its importance to the campus. In addition, a number of critical and strategic improvements will meet the needs of a growing student population and enhance the student experience. The Memorial Union Renewal includes the following improvements:
- The creation of a new, more dynamic entry to the northwest side of campus and to the Memorial Union itself.
- A new two-story lobby in the north face of the Memorial Union.
- Increased lounge/study space.
- A new home for the UC Davis Veterans Affairs Office.
- Expanded opportunities for UC Davis Stores and ASUCD to serve the student population and campus community, including new and updated retail spaces.
- Improvements to the North and South Memorial Union Plazas.
- Critical improvements in compliance with seismic codes and ADA requirements.
