Purdue Memorial Union


In 1922, the first shovelful of earth was moved for the construction of the Purdue Memorial Union. 

One hundred years later, the PMU Ground Floor has reopened as the Atlas Family Marketplace to showcase the most transformative, groundbreaking renovation in its history – and we invite YOU to be a part of it.


The Purdue Memorial Union has long been the home of innovative gathering spaces, programming and dining options. Now, the Union is ready for your return, updated to serve modern needs while retaining traditional and historical elements generations of Boilermakers have enjoyed. These groundbreaking renovations will ensure the PMU remains a campus icon for generations to come. 

The Union is ready to be the cornerstone of campus once again. Make sure that your plans include a stop to find out what the next 100 Years of Groundbreaking have in store.
