Campus LifeStudent Life provides programs, services and facilities centered on enhancing the learning experience of students. Recognizing the diversity of the student population, the University of Memphis accomplishes this by offering a wide variety of options for on-campus residence halls and apartments for both single and married students, food service and dining hall programs, a modern recreation center with programs for students, more than 170 student organizations and a variety of leadership development and community service opportunities.

The University Center, which opened in 2010, is the center of campus life.  The $50 million facility houses many dining choices, including Taco Bell, Dunkin’ Donuts, and a Burger King Whopper Bar.  The 168,000 foot, three-story University Center also features these amenities, all designed to make student life at the U of M more enjoyable:

  • an outdoor eating terrace,
  • a 300 seat movie theatre,
  • meeting spaces and banquet facilities,
  • student organization offices,
  • a 24-hour computer lab,
  • mail services and a copy center, and
  • student lounges.

Campus LifeFor those who enjoy intramural and club sports, the U of M offers a variety of them, including bowling, table tennis, Frisbee, golf, tennis, volleyball, racquetball, dodge ball, kickball, basketball and flag football.

Fraternities and sororities are an integral part of student life at Memphis. Greek members are visible throughout the campus, holding membership and leadership positions in campus organizations and honors societies. Perhaps the greatest benefits of joining the Greek community are the diverse and lasting social networks, academic support and positive group experiences. Greek life allows students to make close friendships and be part of the largest group on the U of M campus.
