Welcome to the Indiana Memorial Union

The Indiana Memorial Union has been the heart of Indiana University Bloomington for more than 100 years. Since its earliest days, the IMU has served as the hub of the campus, providing a welcoming place for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and visitors to connect with each other and the campus as they eat, relax, study, play, or celebrate.

Today, over a century after its founding, the IMU continues to be the lifeblood of IU Bloomington—a home away from home for the IU community and a gateway for visitors to campus, greeting one and all with Hoosier hospitality.

No matter the hour, you’ll find activity in every corner, from the Biddle Hotel and the IU Bookstore to Sugar & Spice and the Student Activities Tower.
