A central hub of activity on campus, The Atrium in the Art and Journalism Building offers foods college students love. Whether you want a custom-made salad, pizza, burrito bowl, or vegan burger, you can find it here. The Atrium is home to two of Ball State's six national brands, Papa John's and Chick-fil-A Express.

Order your meal to go, or relax in the glass-front atrium looking out onto McKinley Avenue. In warm weather, enjoy outdoor dining on the patio.

Dining Options

Nestled on the north side of the Atrium just past the Ball State Bookstore, you'll find the Atrium Café and Convenience Store. It offers a bevy of options you won't find elsewhere on campus and is a place you won't want to miss.

The Atrium's primary area is in the middle of the Art & Journalism Building, with two stories of airy, sunlit dining space set beside a collection of delicious restaurants to fit your favorite flavors.

We are committed to creating a safe environment for all who eat on campus. The University is taking several steps to advance the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
