Student Union

The Student Union is a community space located in the Cougar Dome that provides APU students a place to gather, study, and relax on campus. Stop by and play a game of ping pong with a friend or take advantage of the computer stations to work on a class project. The Student Union also houses a number of student resources and offices, including the Office of Commuter Life and the Office of Campus Life.

Student Union Availability for Fall 2020

As APU pivots to remote learning this fall, the Cougar Dome will be closed for the Fall 2020 semester. While the services located in the Cougar Dome are currently not available, the Office of Commuter Life is still available to offer support and connection. You can contact our office to speak with a Commuter Life staff member by emailing commuters@apu.edu or calling 626-812-3032.
