Additional Information:

The Wisconsin Union operates two buildings on the UW-Madison campus. The Wisconsin Union is a financially self-supporting division of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Financial support for the organization is provided by income earned by twenty-two food service units and a variety of nonfood units such as games, guest rooms, space rentals and campus vending. Substantial support is also provided by student fees. The total annual organizational budget is approximately $45 million dollars.

The idea of a theater wing at the Wisconsin Union came about in the pre-1920's by University President Van Hise and members of the Memorial Union Building Committee. They imagined a theater as an integral part of the Memorial Union, drawing the arts into the daily life of the campus. The Wisconsin Union Theater (WUT) consists of Shannon Hall (capacity 1165), Play Circle Theater (Cap 184) and one rehearsal/dance studio (the Festival Room). The Wisconsin Union Theater, through a student-led committee, presents a season of up to 40 performing arts events annually. Additionally, the WUT hosts campus events including graduations, lectures, conferences, as well as performances by university departments, registered student organizations, and community organizations. WUT is committed to social justice and is on a path towards creating an equitable, diverse, and inclusive place for all who work in and all who engage with its programming, events, and activities.

Student Affairs is led by the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. Our staff is dedicated to serving students and to helping them succeed in and out of the classroom in areas including health and well-being, identity and inclusion, leadership and engagement, and student advocacy. Student Affairs includes departments led by the dean of students; departments that provide identity-based spaces and leadership resources; the Wisconsin Union; University Health Services; and University Recreation and Wellbeing.
