About Atlas Family Market:
With a breathtaking renovation of the ground floor of the Purdue Memorial Union, the Atlas Family Marketplace has started an exciting new chapter in the life of the iconic Union building. The market includes 12 retail dining locations, state-of-the-art technology, increased accessibility and 900 indoor seats in a variety of styles and configurations. On the south side of the building, two new terraces bring increased natural light inside the building. The terraces also add 11,000 square feet of outdoor dining and collaboration space with nearly 150 additional seats and two fire pits. Visitors to the Union will find touches of campus memorabilia in the market, in addition to treasured pieces of the building’s rich heritage.
