The results are in!
An overwhelming 72% of the students voted YES for a New Student Union. We witnessed the incredible dedication, enthusiasm and teamwork of UWM students and employees during this project and we cannot fully express our thanks for everyone’s hard work.
This is the biggest project in UW-Milwaukee’s history and you can say you were a part of it. Congratulations on making history!
So what’s next?
The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents and State Building Commission will review the proposal in mid-summer and the state government will have the final say when they release the 2013 – 2015 budget. When this happens, the fun begins.
The designs and new features of the New Student Union will be finalized and we anticipate the facility to open in fall of 2018. We will keep the campus community updated as the project progresses.
