The University of Maryland's student union building was constructed in 1954 as a center for student activities and the focal point for social and cultural events. Named the Adele H. Stamp Union in 1983, the union was renamed Stamp Student Union in 1988. The Student Union records consist of administrative files and photographs documenting the facilities and operations of the union.
