Student Center

Big Things Are Within Reach

As a central gathering place, the Student Center plays a significant role in the life of SIU, supporting the university’s mission and enhancing the educational experience.  We are committed to providing excellence in programs, services, and facilities while serving students and the community in a safe and inclusive environment.

Take advantage of our many dining options, the Craft Shop, Bowling & Billiards, and other activities during your days as Salukis and as Alumni. Just as we bring students together, we enjoy bringing the community and the university together. We truly have something for everyone.



The Student Center's Starbucks is nearing completion at its new location by the East entrance! The relocation process will take place the weekend of Nov. 7.  The North entrance Starbucks will close at 2 p.m. on 10/7 and the new location will be open 10/12. Come check out the SIU influences on the decor and some of the new items Starbucks will now be offering! We can smell the coffee already!
