Become a Member, and Receive a “Perks Pack” of Unbeatable Meal Deals

Without the valuable support of our Wisconsin Union members, the best things about the Union, including the student-led programming of more than 1,000 events each year, would not be possible. When you become a Wisconsin Union member, you join a community of more than 105,000 members worldwide, connected by a shared love of all things Union.

For a limited time, when you purchase an annual Wisconsin Union membership for only $55, you will receive a “Perks Pack” of dining discounts worth more than $60. The “Perks Pack” features meal deals like free drink coupons and buy one get one free dining offers at every Union dining option, including der Rathskeller, Strada, Carte, the Sett, Ginger Root, South Cantina and more.

Wisconsin Union members enjoy access to our buildings Memorial Union and Union South as well as the Memorial Union Terrace. Annual and lifetime members can purchase adult beverages at Union buildings (for members 21 and over with valid, government-issued photo ID), reserve meeting rooms for some private, special events for free, and join the members-only Hoofers, a community of folks dedicated to exploring the outdoors. Members also receive discounted rates on other fan-favorite Union amenities, such as Outdoor UW equipment rentals, Wheelhouse Studios art classes, Wisconsin Union Theater tickets, Wisconsin Union Hotel and Club Suites rooms and Van Galder bus tickets to Chicago. 

Members enjoy access to Wisconsin Union spaces, including the Memorial Union Terrace.

And, new this year, we invite all members to celebrate “Member Thursdays” throughout the summer! Members will enjoy special discount offers at the Terrace Art Cart and Outdoor UW, and receive invitations to attend members-only tasting events. You won’t want to miss everything available to you as a Wisconsin Union member, so be sure to check TerraceSummer.com for current offerings. 

Wondering what it takes to become a member? You’re in the right place! Anyone 18 and over, regardless of UW-Madison affiliation, can become a member here. Whether you’re a Badger alum or a Terrace lover, a Wisconsin Union membership is the perfect thing for you. As mentioned above, you can purchase an annual membership for only $55. When the year is up, you can easily renew your annual membership for the same price. The best part is that your annual memberships accrue over time, so once you’ve paid a total of $330 towards annual memberships, your status automatically converts to a lifetime member. You don’t have to wait that long, though; you can become a lifetime member at any time for a one-time payment of $275.

Ninety-four percent of membership dollars are funneled right back into Union programming, which is planned and promoted by Wisconsin Union Directorate (WUD) students. By purchasing a membership, you are actively supporting leadership opportunities available to students in the 11 committees and six clubs that compose WUD. WUD leaders work hard to bring a diverse array of free and low-cost experiences to campus and the greater Madison community. 

So, what are you waiting for? Take the next step in your Wisconsin Union journey, and become a member today to start taking advantage of all your member benefits, including the limited edition “Perks Pack.”

Note: “Perks Packs” are not available to new grads, but each new grad has the unique opportunity to purchase a lifetime membership for 75 percent off the usual price.
