Over the next couple of months there will be some construction noise in the NE area of the Illini Union as we prepare to welcome Illinois Street Residence Hall dining in August and make improvements to the building that will allow us to provide better service to our guests. Also, for your safety, be aware of the construction fencing around the front circle drive and parking areas as you come and go from the facility. Thank you for patience during this time.
