Ole Miss Student Union Closing, Leaves UM Students with Less Food Options

Ole Miss Student Union undergoes $59 million renovation and expansion
The University of Mississippi Student Union is a place for students to eat, socialize and study. The Union first opened in 1977 when it was able to occupy 9,000 students. However with the student enrollment being over 23,000, the numbers just don't add up.

The building is undergoing a full renovation and expansion to accommodate to campus growth. The finished project will double the building in size, from 97,600 to 173,000 square feet.

"The needs of the students needed to be met," Ole Miss Student Union Director Bradley Baker said.

Once completed, the new Union will add a Which Wich sandwich shop and McAlister's deli shop to the menu, while the existing Chick-Fil-A, Qdoba Mexican Grill, Panda Express, Provisions on Demand and Toss It Up restaurants will return.
