The smaller and newer of the two unions at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It was built in the 1970s, but in spite of this, actually looks pretty decent. Not many organizations have offices there, but there are quite a few meeting rooms. Union South is home to the Red Cross's on-campus blood donation center, Young Blood. There is also a bowling alley in the basement.

Union South is very close to the engineering and computer science buildings, and as such, is very popular among those majors. I myself have spent far more on coffee there than I wish to recall. Good coffee, though.

Union South was established by a political student group who reacted the ideological foundations of Memorial Union in late 60's because that place was built in remembrance for those fought in First World War. Not quite popular, and not as fancy as the original union it is quite underrated. But it is one of the few places in the world that you can watch a free movie and actually enjoy it.
