Iowa Memorial Union to undergo major renovation to better serve students
Ninety-eight years ago, in 1925, the Iowa Memorial Union (IMU) opened, providing University of Iowa students a place to gather, participate in campus activities, and deepen their Hawkeye connections. As the IMU prepares for its 100th birthday, the university is looking to its future and how the building can continue to serve as a hub for student activity and support.
Pending Board approval, planned renovations to the IMU beginning in summer 2024 will add a new Well-Being and Mental Health Center, bringing together clinical health services, mental health counseling, wellness programs, and student care resources, such as the food pantry and case management for students experiencing emergencies, in one place. Meeting space, ballrooms, and multipurpose rooms will be updated, renovated, or added, as will food service options.
