U-Con is an annual gaming convention founded in 1989. It attracts gamers from Southeast Michigan, across the United States, and several other countries. U-Con offers high-quality events across the spectrum of gaming: tabletop, role playing games, board and card games, miniatures, live action role playing (LARP), and more. U-Con offers unique opportunities to play with industry Guests of Honor in the games they created!
U-Con Gaming Convention is run by U-Con Gaming Club, a registered non-profit. We are an all volunteer organization!
If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact us. We are happy to help!
The first U-Con was actually called Michi-Mini Con, held in spring of 1989, followed by the first U-Con in the fall of 1989. Conventions from 1989-2010 were held at the University of Michigan Michigan Union. In 2011 we moved the convention to a local hotel. We are the largest and longest-lasting gaming-focused convention in Michigan.
U-Con has been made possible by many dedicated volunteers over the years. The con was run for 23 years by student organizations, the Wolverine Gaming Club and the U-Con Gaming Club. In 2012, the leadership of U-Con founded a non-profit organization to organize the convention.
If you want to get involved in organizing the convention, please start by becoming a volunteers. We hope the convention lasts for many seasons to come!
