Conference Room


We welcome you to experience the Student Center, an ideal venue to plan meetings, conferences, trainings, seminars and special events in southern Illinois. Combining 28 multi-function meeting rooms, conference planning, audio-visual services, advanced technology, on-site catering, and a dedicated, professional staff, the Student Center promises to make your event an enjoyable and productive experience.


As of July 28, 2021, consistent with the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Illinois Department of Public Health, we are requiring face masks be worn in shared spaces indoors such as lobbies, hallways and classrooms, regardless of vaccination status.

According to the CDC, we are in an area with high transmission of the virus. We believe this step is necessary to keep everyone safe and have the in-person fall semester we all want.


On June 10, Gov. JB Pritzker announced Illinois entered Phase 5 of Restore Illinois. The most noticeable component of this phase is the lifting of restrictions for how many people can get together in one place. We are reverting to limitations in place before the pandemic, such as the capacity of a room or venue. Summer camps will continue to operate with appropriate COVID protocols in place.
