Joe Crowley Student Union
The Joe Crowley Student Union is a 165,000 square foot, "green" environmentally friendly facility designed by WTW Architects and Lundahl and Associates. This exciting new facility on the University of Nevada, Reno campus opened in November of 2007. While still complementing the campus's Jeffersonian architecture and traditional red brick facade, the interior walls are covered with a Sierra Wall encompassing all four floors with the mountain colors and shapes. The Sierra theme continues into the finishes throughout the building.
Joe includes a wide variety of conference rooms, and additionally a formal reception room and ballroom. We are most pleased to have this premier facility as a venue for our "Navigating the Nevada Economy" workshop.
Students chose to name the Joe Crowley Student Union in honor of Dr. Joe Crowley who served for 23 years as President of The University of Nevada, Reno. The building is primarily funded by student fees that students self-assessed and the Regents approved.
