The union also continues to house the Department of Student Activities and Involvement, Student Government, Student Legal Services, and the Career Resource Center. The addition brings the Union and Bookstore/Welcome Center/Parking Garage complex to approximately 594,000 gross square feet. From the very beginning, the Union has been student-focused. As student needs have changed over the years, and with growth of the student population, the union has adapted accordingly. The Reitz Union continues to be an integral part of student life by serving as the home of Student Government and many student organizations, and providing a wide variety of services, programs, and facilities for all students and the broader university community.
