Tangeman University Center Information

History
The University of Cincinnati opened the Student Union in 1935. After World War II, the building was renamed the Donald Core Tangeman University Center in honor of an alumnus’ son killed in action on March 28, 1945.

In 2001, a major renovation and expansion on the union began. The $50.7 million project included adding a 90 ft. atrium with a skylight and renovating the original clock tower. It was completed in 2004.

Unique Features
The atrium is a key feature of the Tangeman University Center as it provides much light throughout the building; the most famous feature is the clock tower. Other features of the union include a food court featuring six retail locations; Mick & Mack’s, a full service-restaurant; Catskeller Campus Pub, the UC Bookstores, and a 200-seat movie theater.
