Lynda and Stewart Resnick Student Union: Coming soon!

The Lynda and Stewart Resnick Student Union will ignite campus pride by providing an array of events and opportunities for students to connect with the campus, get involved, and grow as leaders. 

Studies have shown that student unions improve retention rates and student success by providing students with a central hub for activities and engagement between classes. Connecting with peers, joining a student club or organization, participating in study groups, catching a lecture, or grabbing a meal all enrich the student life experience and foster a sense of belonging in students.

The New Student Union will enhance the student experience by offering a variety of leadership experiences, fun events, more dining options, and a dynamic space to study and socialize.

The full press release can be found on Fresno State News.

Project Updates:

The 84,000-square-foot Lynda and Stewart Resnick Student Union will include dynamic and interchangeable meeting spaces, dedicated spaces for student organizations and a relaxing outdoor terrace that can be used year-round.

The $60 million project is expected to be completed in fall 2021, with a groundbreaking ceremony planned for later this autumn.

The existing University Student Union will continue to provide key programs and services that will complement the new facility.
