The newly renovated Wyoming Union is the hub of the campus, with the campus bookstore and numerous student facilities. The University is also home to the American Heritage Center. The Center contains numerous special collections, manuscripts and artifacts covering a broad range of disciplines. The collections relate to the American experience, not just that of Wyoming or its residents.
