As a precaution, the SIU Student Center and Conference and Scheduling Services has adjusted its calendar of events and conference services programs. We are exercising the utmost caution and taking responsible action to help ensure the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and community members.

As a part of the Restore Illinois plan and per the university's coronavirus response, the Student Center is open and Conference and Scheduling Services are open. Please stop in during our business hours, email or call 618-536-7751 for any needs.

University-sponsored gatherings of up to 50 people are allowed with appropriate approval in compliance with university guidelines and the state's Restore Illinois Plan. Event sponsors are expected to have an approved plan that incorporates social distancing and other safety protocols. Approval is required for all on-campus and off-campus events sponsored by the university. To request approval, submit the COVID-19 Event Approval Form at least two weeks before the event. Events may not be promoted until they are approved, so early submission is encouraged. In order to protect the health and safety of the university community, external groups may not rent or use university facilities at this time.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Student Center has adjusted guidelines related to scheduling processes, capacities, solicitation and cancellation of meetings and events. For more information, please visit our  Fall 2020 Scheduling and Events Plan.
