If you wish to place an order to have food available at your recruiting event, please contact the Special Events office at 540-568-6637. Refreshments from vendors other than JMU Dining Services/Aramark are not permitted at on-campus events. You should schedule catering at least one week in advance.

Office Hours

If you would like to meet one-on-one with students interested in your company and opportunities, please reach out to us at in regard to holding office hours in our Interview Center.

Parking Arrangements

Parking arrangements vary depending on the location of your event. Once a member of our staff has secured a location for your event and approved your request, you will receive a confirmation email providing driving and parking instructions by location.

Parking passes must be displayed in vehicles parked on campus at all times to avoid parking citations, unless otherwise noted in your confirmation details.


Our office has telepresence capabilities if you are unable to travel to James Madison University or would like to connect with our students remotely. You are welcome to conduct virtual information sessions or hold webinars through use of our video conferencing software.
