Three routes to the bookstore

Crews began the third and final phase of the bookstore addition and remodel in the Memorial Union earlier this month. In phase 3, the front half of the original bookstore will be remodeled (with the main entrance moved to the south) and ISU Dining will construct its MU Cafe and Market at the west end of the bookstore. The work began Jan. 5 and is expected to take most of spring semester.

Interior access to the store from the MU food court will remain closed during phase 3. Customers may access the bookstore from one of three new building entrances: the northeast entrance (with access to the outside or the MU parking ramp), the south entrance, or a new west entrance just off the MU terrace (pictured).
