Welcome to Western’s University Center

University Centers and Student Unions represent the essence of a campus and are indicators of a healthy student body that subscribes to both an active lifestyle and academic integrity. Western’s University Center is just this—a hive teeming with energy and collaboration. The University Center is not only home to the Rare Air Cafe dining facility, but also Mad Jack’s, Western’s coffee and snack shop. The University Center also demonstrates student and community engagement by housing several ballrooms and conference rooms, a movie theatre, Wilderness Pursuits equipment rentals, LEAD & Orientation offices, the Multicultural Center and the Residence Life offices. Bar none, the University Center is another campus venue waiting eagerly for your next event.
