Please Note

We are committed to creating a safe environment for all who eat on campus. The university is taking several steps to advance health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors. Review our plan for further details.


In order to mitigate the risk of transmission, University Dining Services is currently preparing all orders as "to-go," with purchases presently for carryout only. We appreciate your understanding and patience.


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.
