An intellectual, cultural and social hub with something to offer everyone: A little rhythm, a genius here or there, and a whole lotta talent. Have an idea for a Union event we haven't thought of? We've got people to help with that.


During the day, the Courtyard’s a place hang out with friends, grab something to eat or drink, watch television or catch a noon-time program.


On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, the Courtyard becomes a nightclub of sorts, hosting live music and performances of all kinds for Illinois students and offering solid alternatives to the campus bar scene.


Other evening events include lectures, debates and performances. Hang out long enough and you’ll see a little of everything. Or you could just check out the calendar.
