Memorial Union North Courtyard Project

Summer is almost upon us and so is a notable renovation project in front of the Memorial Union. Starting around June 18, the Memorial Union North Courtyard will be under construction for beautification. During this construction phase, all Memorial Union, Coffee House, Games Area and UC Davis Stores services will remain available; just follow the signs that will route you to appropriate entrances. When completed, the new courtyard landscape will include additional seating, shade and lighting for all of your outdoor studying, socializing and snacking needs.

The new design will enhance student interaction and gathering opportunities in the following ways:

  • New gathering spaces to accommodate groups of all sizes.
  • Enhanced landscape that increases user comfort and provides shade.
  • Additional lighting and Wi-Fi.
  • Improved circulation between Memorial Union, Memorial Union Bus Terminal, Campus Store, Freeborn Hall and Quad with design elements that highlight the centennial walk.

It is important to note that student fees will not increase to fund this renovation.
