Group Visits and Room Reservations

Interested in visiting the Dining Center with a group? 

  1. Please call the Dining Services at (269) 387-4844 to schedule a group visit to the Student Center Dining (3rd floor) or the Valley Dining Center at (269) 387-4836 at least 2 weeks in advance. (Room reservation is not required to visit the dining centers; your group may schedule a visit without reserving a private dining room.)

  2. Visits may be scheduled for week days (Monday through Friday) and are available on a first-come first-serve basis.  

  3. Meal purchases or meal plan swipes for all guests are required. Groups should purchase meal tickets in advance (providing a fund/cost center) or plan to pay for the group using a single credit card at the door. Check door rates and meal times here

Failure to show for your scheduled visit without a 48-hour notice will result in a $25 cancellation fee billed to the responsible party. To cancel your visit, contact Dining Services (269) 387-4844 or the Valley Dining Center at (269) 387-4836. 

There are certain dates that the dining centers cannot accept group visits or reservations based on capacity. If your request conflicts with any of these dates, you will be informed of this when you call to schedule. Dates that we cannot accept reservations or group visits include: 

  • The first few weeks of the Fall Semester: Thursday, Aug 24 - Friday, Sept 15, 2023

  • The last 2 operating dates of each semester: December 14 & 15, 2023 and April 25 & 26, 2024.


  • Room Reservations Available and Capacities


    Bronco Room: 20 - 50 guests

    • Minimum of 20 guests are required, or the group will need to pay a $50 reservation fee. 

    Westside Room: 40 - 80 guests

    • Minimum of 40 guests are required, or the group will need to pay a $50 reservation fee. 

    The room reservation fee may be paid by either a credit card at the Valley Dining Center upon arrival on the day of the scheduled reservation or by a fund/cost center at the time of booking the reservation.

  • Room Set-Ups

    At this time, no special room set-ups are available. Groups may rearrange the tables and chairs upon arrival, but will be required to return the tables and chairs to their original set-up before leaving.
