Improvements in CyBowl

Check out what's new in CyBowl & Billiards!

When the Memorial Union re-opened on August 3, we were excited to open the doors to an updated CyBowl & Billiards space as well.

The MU staff has been slowly making upgrades to the space since last year. First, we were able to complete some improvements to the bowling lanes themselves so that each lane is now level and smooth for your optimal roll. After that, we added some better lights and seating in the bowling area, which makes throwing some frames with your friends a blast.

But if bowling isn't your thing, don't worry - we've got a spot for you too. The other side of CyBowl saw some updates over the summer. While the MU was closed in response to COVID-19, our staff was able to use the time to give the space a new coat of paint and get some furniture so that we could redefine the space. On the turf, enjoy games and relax in an Adirondack chair while you wait your turn.

If you love billiards, we have you covered with five tables. The rest of the space is divided into hang-out spaces with soft seating, bar tables, and even a few tables and a counter made out of the old bowling lanes! 

Staff from the MU have had fun repurposing items that have been removed from other areas of the MU into Cybowl, including wood trim and lighting fixtures. One staff member went the extra mile and donated the wrought-iron rails from his renovated front porch to the project - you can now find them around the bar area!

Our staff is diligent about enforcing visitors to wear face coverings and keep a safe social distance, and they sanitize and disinfect often. This means CyBowl & Billiards is a perfect spot for your upcoming birthday party or get-together! 

You've really got to see it to appreciate the glow-up, so stop by CyBowl & Billiards the next time you're in the MU.
