Planning began for the Charger Union two years ago when a group of students and staff began researching student centers in the Southeast. Through their campus visits, numerous focus groups with UAHuntsville students, and lots of surveys, the Charger Union began to take shape. Construction begins in the summer of 2012 and the building is expected to take 18 months to complete. Check out our YouTube video about the new building.
The Charger Union will be THE place for student life on campus!
The building will include:
- Lounge space for informal meetings and gatherings
