If you are interested in hosting an event at James Madison University, please contact us as soon as possible because availability is limited. Even if you are not sure of the exact number of participants yet, we will work with you to make sure that space is available for your group. Our timeline is generally flexible; however, final confirmations are due at least two weeks prior to your event.

During the summer, the bus service on campus is limited. Please let us know if your group has any special transportation needs so that we can make arrangements. Any transportation costs will be consolidated into your final bill.
