The Student Union Building at Truman State University provides students, faculty, staff, and community members with an open, comfortable space to meet for events, meals, conferences, and many other opportunities. It houses many offices, as well as serves as the campus’s “living room”, where students can do homework or enjoy a coffee with friends.
The Mainstreet Market is home to many different dining options, and Einstein’s Bagels, which will open in January 2019, serves coffee and bagels. The spaces in the Student Union Building are versatile and can serve many purposes. Check out the rest of our site for more information on the services we provide, the spaces in the building, and the offices housed here.
