The Union Club Hotel at Purdue University, Autograph Collection

Welcome to The Union Club Hotel at Purdue University, Autograph Collection


The Union Club Hotel was named the nation’s Best Boutique Hotel of 2021. This iconic property was built in phases from 1929-1953 as an addition to the Purdue Memorial Union and is now completely reimagined. The Union Club Hotel is now apart of Marriott's Autograph Collection and the only student-ran Autograph Hotel in the world. Being located on Purdue's Campus, one of the most distinguished and historic colleges, we celebrate multiple Purdue legends, especially in our dining outlets, 8Eleven, Boiler Up Bar and Leaps Coffee. The inspiration for our rooms and décor represent Purdue's classic colors and history. Our unique designs show through in our versatile event spaces. From ballrooms to private dining rooms, The Union Club Hotel is perfect for any occasion. Steps away from iconic Purdue attractions like Ross-Ade Stadium, enjoy the comfort and convenience of being right on campus.

The contemporary design pulls through many of the building's original architectural elements while celebrating alumni who have had an impact around the world.

Our History

The Union Club Hotel first opened in 1929 with five major expansions over the next century. In 2020 a newly reimagined Union Club Hotel opened to the public, continuing the legacy.
