Student Center

Welcome to the Baker Pattillo Student Center, the 90,000-square-foot “living room” of the SFA campus. The facility features a multitude of student services, university departments, and dining outlets, as well as comfortable meet-up and hang-out spaces for students, faculty and staff. A dramatic, three-story atrium welcomes visitors to the student center, which also houses a 383-seat movie theater, E-sports lounge, convenience store, Starbucks, and a food court with in-demand eateries like Panda Express and Chick-fil-A. So, whether you need to host a meeting or event, find a quiet place to study, pick up a package, replace your student ID, or grab a snack and cup of coffee on the way to an early class, the student center has everything you are looking for and more.
