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 will have limited food concepts open during Intersession. Stop in Monday-Friday and enjoy Chick-fil-A or a delicious made-to-order salad at Freshly Tossed from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Breakfast options will be available at Starbucks and McDonalds. Regular hours begin again at the start of Fall Semester.

Bowling & Billiards Intersession Hours

August 2-13, Bowling & Billiards will have fun for everyone with open bowling available Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be closed on Saturdays and Sundays.  Regular hours will begin again August 14. Note: Monday Night Bowling Leagues are now forming for Fall Semester! Sign up by stopping in or calling 618/453-2803. Everyone's welcome!


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!
