Larsen Student Union

Your Hub for Student Activity

Larsen Student Union, located at the center of campus, will also be central to your social life at Messiah. It functions like a campus "living room" and is a great place to meet new people, hang out with friends, or get together with classmates for a group study session (don't forget your cup of coffee or fruit smoothie from the Union Café!)

At the Union you'll find:

  • Two pool tables
  • Foosball table
  • Big-screen TV
  • Large selection of popular board games
  • Game room with televisions
  • Wireless Internet access
  • The Union Café
  • Eating and social spaces
  • Fireplace
  • Meeting and office spaces

And many different types of activities happen at the Union throughout the year. For example you might:

  • Catch a B-sides concert, which showcases up-and-coming off-campus musicians every Wednesday night.
  • Cheer on your classmates at our popular monthly Coffeehouse concerts - a variety show of the best and brightest talent at Messiah College.
  • Enjoy Hopefest, an annual fair with music and activities to raise awareness and funds for New Hope Ministries, which serves two nearby counties by assisting people in need to pay for basic needs, such as food, shelter, or utility bills.
  • Learn about different cultures at Cultural Explosion, an annual celebration of culture and tradition that features fashion shows, dance performances, poets, and more.
