Thousands of students, staff, and faculty enter University Unions buildings every single day for lunch, dinner, meetings, or studying. Now you can advertise for your organization's events and programs on the dining tables in three University Unions: the Michigan Union, Michigan League, and Pierpont Commons. Student organizations and university departments can rent Table Tents; they are not available to unaffiliated businesses or individuals.

When can I reserve Table Tents?

Table tents are available for one week at a time from early September until mid April. Because of high demand, a random drawing is conducted each semester for the use of the space.
