Welcome to the heart of Western Kentucky University's Campus!

Located in the center of WKU's campus, the Downing Student Union, (DSU), is truly the hub of WKU activities. Constructed in 1970, the building was named after former Western Kentucky University president, Dr. Dero Downing.  Today, the facility houses auxiliary and academic support services, is the primary dining location on campus, serves as the student organization meeting facility and is also home to the Department of Student Activities..

A variety of student-based programming occurs throughout the year including musical programs, special events, and lectures.  Whether you want to buy books/supplies, enjoy a meal, become involved in leadership/volunteer activities, inquire about student organizations, seek job opportunities, acquire about your student ID, find tutoring assistance, buy postal stamps, or just meet friends, the Downing Student Union is the place to visit while you are at Western Kentucky University
