The JHUnions is a program within the Office of Student Leadership and Involvement to tie together the three main socially-centric locations on campus: Levering Hall, the Mattin Center, and the LaB. JHUnions seeks to enhance the social atmosphere of JHU students through regular programming and events within the student union spaces. These spaces include areas in Levering Hall, the Mattin Center, and the LaB. The JHUnions programming board works independently and in collaboration with student organizations to develop a wide variety of programs and events every week. Stay up to date with all of the events on our Facebook page!
JHUnions operate within three social spaces on campus. Each space offers unique features to accommodate any programming need.
Levering Hall holds a dining hall, a cafe, a large student lounge, various offices, and plenty of programming space for events large and small. Levering Lounge is the most common area in Levering for JHUnions events such as Movie Nights and our weekly Paint Night event! It is a great space for a casual social event or can serve as a reception area in conjunction with the Great Hall. The lounge is also equipped with a pool and ping pong table, PS4’s and a variety of video games for student use. See our JHUnions Levering Student Monitors for more information about using the great amenities in the lounge.
