When it comes to dining options, JMU promises quality, variety and affordability.  We offer above and beyond the typical school cafeteria including buffet or a la carte selections that range from home-style entrees to international and vegetarian/vegan options.  During the summer, most of our dining facilities operate on restricted schedules, so it is important to make arrangements for your conference in advance.  We will work with you to determine the minimum number of meals your event attendees will require each day.

You can choose whether you want your event catered or your meals served at one of our on-campus dining locations.  A popular choice for large groups is the East Campus Dining Facility (E-Hall), a 700-seat all-you-care-to-eat facility with a wide range of options to suit diverse tastes.  If you prefer a catered event or banquet, JMU’s Special Events and Catering team will provide the service, and the cost will be billed through Conference Services.

If you prefer to eat off-campus, there are dozens of great restaurants within 15 minutes of campus, including many unique locally owned options.  For more details, please see our Area Information page.
