Abstract: Bordism theories $ S{U_ \ast }({Z_2},all)$ for SU-manifolds with involution and $ S{U_ \ast }({Z_2},free)$ for SU-manifolds with free involution are defined. The latter is studied by use of the SU-bordism spectral sequence of $ B{Z_2}$, and the orders of the spheres $ {S^{4n + 3}}$ with antipodal action are determined. It is shown that $ S{U_{2k}}({Z_2},free) \to S{U_{2k}}({Z_2},all)$ is monic, and that an element of $ S{U_{2k}}({Z_2},all)$ bounds as a unitary involution if and only if it is a multiple of the nonzero class $ \alpha \in S{U_1}$.
