The Student Union is a home away from home for many

The William L. and Berniece E. Grewcock Student Union

Bustling with students and faculty alike, the Student Union is a place to gather and connect.

The Student Union is a home away from home for many. Enjoy a meal at the Knorr Family Dining Room. Grab some new Charger gear at the College Bookstore. Play a round of ping pong or billiards with friends. Sip a coffee with a professor at the beloved A.J.’s Cafe 1844, catch up with friends by the cozy fireplace, or simply sink into a leather couch and study the evening away in one of the many lounges and conference rooms. In addition, the Union houses student mailboxes, student publication offices, the Student Activities Office, and Volunteer Services. You can even say hello to the bronze Winston Churchill Liberty Walk statue in the foyer as you enter the Union from the North Quad.

The Grewcock Student Union bears the names of benefactors William L. and Berniece E. Grewcock.

The union follows a tradition of student gathering places that began with Dickerson Gymnasium in 1949 and continued with the Fred A. Knorr Memorial Student Center in 1964. Over forty years later, as a part of the Founders Campaign, the Hillsdale administration included plans for a new student union in its building plan, one that would bring under one roof all aspects of student life.

The union is intentionally located in the center of campus so students can easily pass through on their way to class or stay for a while between classes and activities. The building follows the traditional brick design of other campus buildings, while its interior has a comfortable, home-like feel.
