Located at the heart of campus on the Main Quad

The Illini Union is the student union for the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Since 1941, it has been the campus's home for student organizations, meetings, student programs and activities, and more.

Today, the Illini Union houses study spaces, restaurant and retail options, a rec room, a hotel, and campus organizations that promote student success--such as the Parent and Family Programs office, the Student Org Complex, and the McKinley Health Resource Center, to name a few. 

Comprised of 11 different planning committees, the Illini Union Board is the campus event-planning board with hundreds of weekly events, ranging from comedy shows, movie nights, and trivia, to special appearances and even the annual outdoor concert on the Quad – Spring Jam.
