Northern Center (formerly the University Center)

The Northern Center, formerly known as the University Center, is a key gathering place for not only the campus community, but for Marquette County and the Upper Peninsula as well. The facility was completely renovated in 2019, and functions as the front door to the university.

Its flexible conference facilities include a Grand Ballroom which can be expanded or divided for large or small groups. The center also features the Barnes and Noble campus bookstore, Wildcat Den Pub and the offices for the Center for Student Enrichment.
