The Indiana Memorial Union (IMU) is a student union building at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. It is located at 900 E 7th Street, facing the Jordan River and the Dunn Meadow.

The Indiana Memorial Union was dedicated on June 13, 1932. At nearly 500,000 square feet (46,000 m2), it is the world's largest student union building under one roof[citation needed].

John Whittenberger, a student, founded the Indiana Union in 1909. Every student at Indiana University's Bloomington campus is a member of the Indiana Memorial Union by default. The Indiana Memorial Union Board is the governing body of the Indiana Memorial Union. The Union Board is led by a group of 16 student directors, a faculty representative, an administrative representative, an alumni representative, and the Executive Director of the Indiana Memorial Union. This 20-person committee is known as the Union Board of Directors.
