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 Marketplace Food Court is open M-F and offers a delicious homemade breakfast from 7:30 - 10:30 a.m. For lunch, enjoy Chick-fil-A, Sbarro, or a salad from our Freshly Tossed salad bar. Lunch runs from 10:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. The east patio is open and is a beautiful spot to enjoy your lunch in either the shade or the sun. Come by, we look forward to serving you!


If you are looking for some summer fun, the Student Center is the place to be! Enjoy McBowling Monday through Friday from 2 – 4:30 p.m. This Bowling & Billiards special runs June 16 – July 25. It includes unlimited bowling, shoe rental, and a medium McDonald’s Value Meal for just $8.


The Student Center is excited to announce the addition of Subway coming later this summer! It will be located across from the Marketplace Food Court just south of the Roman Room. 


The Student Center Craft Shop is gearing up for a summer of fun activities for kids, adults, or kids and adults to take together! Check out our Workshops page for a detailed listing of all our summer classes!
