East Coast Conference Centers
The beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains is legendary. It is upon that backdrop, in the incomparable Shenandoah Valley, that its founders placed the James Madison University. The Blue Ridge Parkway and several historic sites are just minutes away. Life is older... but the university’s full-service conference facility is new, friendly and sports leading-edge technologies!

Getting to such an enthralling place used to be quite difficult. These days, it’s just a plane ride or car drive away. Washington, D.C., Richmond, and Roanoke, Virginia are each just 100 miles from the campus. The Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport is just fifteen minutes down the road. Getting there is easy, and the East Coast vistas are a true delight!

From May through August, JMU is pleased to be able to provide affordable overnight lodgings for you and your guests. The rest of the year, the academic calendar won’t allow it. Of course, the rest of the campus’ facilities remain open all year long.

JMU can welcome up to 4500 attendees, seating up to 1100 in the largest of the theatres, and up to 500 in one grand classroom-style hall. All-told, there are 225 chambers! That’s plenty of places for your group to find quiet conversation if they’d like to. Use the smaller rooms for sub-groups, for break-out sessions, for team-building... This top Virginia conference center has facilities are versatile, allowing you to use them as you need!
