Smith Memorial Student Union
1825 SW Broadway St.

The Smith Memorial Student Union (SMSU), located at 1825 SW Broadway, serves as the living room for the PSU campus. It is a gathering place for students, faculty, staff, and community to meet, attend events, socialize, eat, relax, and take advantage of recreational facilities.

The SMSU Ballroom and its other meeting rooms host a variety of activities, including conferences, lectures, meetings, dances, and concerts. All campus events (other than credit classes) are scheduled by Conference & Events in room 435 of the SMSU.

The SMSU is home to the Associated Students of PSU (ASPSU) as well as many other student groups and student publications. It's also home to the Multicultural Center, La Casa Latina, the Dean of Student Life, Student Activities, and Leadership Programs as well as many other student services and advocacy centers.

The SMSU has amenities as diverse as the student run Littmann and White art galleries; the Viking GameRoom with a bowling alley, pool hall, and video game lounge; the University Market which sells snacks, sundries, and school supplies; and the PSU Spirit Store, which carries PSU spirit gear and memorabilia. 

The SMSU Food Court provides diverse cuisines and dining experiences provided by Einstein's Bagels, Greens to Go, The Grille Works, and a Grab and Go among others, and also includes a Starbucks Coffee stand as well.

The University Box Office is located at the Broadway entrance to the SMSU. Tickets are for sale there to PSU cultural activities and events, as well as intercollegiate athletic home events.  The PSU  Box Office has a new on-line ticket website. It's a quick, simple, and convenient way for our community to select and print tickets for PSU events. The on-line ticket website can be accessed through the Box Office website, listed above.

The Box Office website is also an excellent source for information on events that are free for PSU students. Student groups can also use the University Box Office to provide ticketing services for their events. Information for all of these services is available on the Box Office website.

In addition to these amenities, the SMSU offers dining and lounge spaces, including the recently remodeled 4th Floor Quiet Study Lounge, the Parkway Commons, and the second floor Main Lounge, which offers a picturesque view of the Park Blocks.
