Showcasing the latest innovations in college union facility design, the Facilities & Design Showcase offers the opportunity to meet with facility/design specialists, student union directors, campus facilities professionals, and other professionals during a mix of education sessions, sponsor presentations, and the annual Facility & Design Awards.

If your institution has plans for a capital construction project in the next three to five years, the Facilities & Design Showcase, held virtually August 3–5, is the ideal opportunity to see the future of student unions and other facilities that are building campus community. Even if a major construction or renovation project is not in your near future, the showcase will highlight solutions to issues that we all face in our facilities. 

To reserve your space, learn more about making a presentation, and to participate in the companion special Renovation and Construction print edition of ACUI’s The Bulletin magazine, contact Steve Chaplin at or Heather Brown at General inquiries or questions can be sent to
