After a nearly 2-year renovation closure, the Michigan Union opened to the public on Monday, January 13, 2020. 

A few people are telling us that it's a little difficult to find the SORC, so here is a guide:

  1. Make your way to the 1st floor of the Michigan Union. You will see the Campus Information desk, Willis Ward Lounge, South Lounge, and the breathtaking new 3-story courtyard.
  2. Meander to the main entrance of that courtyard. If you've never seen it before, take a few seconds to check it out because it's pretty awesome!
  3. Now, turn to your left. You will see open stairs and the "South Elevator," directly adjacent to the South Lounge. Push the "up" button for that elevator.
  4. Get on and press "3M." The doors will open on the back side of the elevator when you get to 3M. SORC is straight ahead of you, only about 10 steps. Once you get to 3M, you can't miss us!

If you have any questions, email us at or call 734-764-0436.
