Union Defines Valpo Experience


Our Valpo Our TimeThanks to initial gifts from Valparaiso University alumni and friends, the 202,000-square-foot Harre Union was dedicated on Jan. 31, 2009.

Fundraising continues for the union, which has a total project cost of $74 million.

Your gift to the union supports:

  • student development of leadership, teamwork and social skills.
  • the residential community education that distinguishes Valparaiso University,
  • allowing the interaction of students, faculty and staff.
  • Valpo’s ability to produce graduates who become leaders in their churches, professions and communities.

 The union accomplishes the above by providing:

  • space for the more than 100 student organizations on campus.
  • an international and multicultural suite.
  • a large central dining hall where students, faculty and staff share meals.
  • a banquet/multipurpose room that seats 500 people for banquets or 1,000 for lectures.
  • an office suite for the Career Center.
  • a convenience store.
  • a post office.
  • a mailbox for each student on campus, and
  • a bookstore that also carries Valpo merchandise for alumni.
