The student union on the Ole Miss campus has been completely “behind the fence” since December 21, 2016. With just a small selection of the student body in town for summer classes, crews are hard at work to keep the project on track. The new addition to the union is scheduled to be finished before the beginning of the upcoming fall semester.
The completed project will double the square footage of the Union with 173,000 square feet. All of the restaurants will be in the expansion section of the Student Union. In addition to Chick-Fil-A, Panda Express and other restaurants which were available before the construction, a full-service McAlister’s Deli and Which Wich Sandwich’s will open as well.
In addition to new dining options, the expansion will also feature an 8,200 square foot ballroom space for events. As the expansion enters its final months of construction, you can see the project’s progress below.
The existing structure’s renovation won’t be completed until the fall of 2018. The space will be transformed both inside and out to feature new meeting spaces for student organizations, with a 2,500 square foot conference room and a 2,700 square foot council room. Photos of the existing structure’s renovation can be seen below.
