Your home away from home is how students describe the newly renovated Comstock Memorial Union. Originally constructed in the mid 1960s, the students wanted an updated space. With a desire for more daylight, space with a coffee house atmosphere, a welcoming entry, social lounge spaces and a fireplace, they were excited when the project broke ground on May 2015.
A welcoming entry was incredibly important to students.

The 34,000-square-foot remodel of the building allowed it to be more accessible for its students. It has an open concept, where there is variety of seating options that liven up the space and provide the students with the needed amenities to be successful.
It’s a place where students can feel safe, talk to other students, can do homework, have places to go to eat. It’s their home away from home essentially.
