Service Continuity Update (3/30/2020)
By now, you have received multiple communications from President Montgomery and our Provost, Dr. Jennifer Bott, regarding the university’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. WMU remains open; however, to support the effort to minimize person-to-person contact and “shelter-in-place,” the Bernhard Center is closed through Saturday, April 25, 2020.
To request assistance, you may email us, call our general number (269) 387-4860 or contact our staff directly. During this time, email or phone is the most effective way for us to connect with you. Please note that we will respond to your emails and phone calls as soon as possible. Direct contact information for staff members can be found below.
Paul Terzino, Bernhard Center Director
The Bernhard Center, currently serving as the WMU student center, offers the entire campus community many services, facilities and programs under one roof. Meeting rooms of all sizes, retail, lounges, food, student support offices, the campus bookstore, and much more provide opportunities to meet, relax, learn and enjoy.
Starting fall 2021, phase one of the new WMU Student Center is projected to open as part of the Hilltop Village development and planning efforts. A new and vibrant student-focused center will encourage social engagement and co-curricular activities for diverse student populations.
The Bronco Mall is located on the lower level of the Bernhard Center, and is a convenient meeting place to relax or connect with friends. Diverse programming is offered by and for WMU students, faculty, staff and community members. Extended hours provide added convenience for busy student lifestyles.
