Thank you for your interest in the UMMC Conference Center at the Jackson Medical Mall. This facility is part of the University of Mississippi Medical Center and consists of a 500-seat theater, three smaller conference rooms of various sizes, and a common area. The center is located at the northwest corner of the Jackson Medical Mall and is isolated from the remainder of the mall with its own entrance and ample free parking. The Jackson Medical Mall is a smoke-free facility within the confines of the perimeter fence and the building.
The UMMC Conference Center is used to provide continuing education for health care providers to improve health care for Mississippi.
Non-UMMC groups that align with UMMC's missions of education, research and health care may be permitted to use the facility with prior approval by the UMMC Conference Center Oversight Council. The Conference Center cannot be used for activities that generate personal or commercial revenue, or events hosted solely for fundraising or non-education based social engagements. The availability of facilities to non-UMMC groups is subject to the needs and convenience of UMMC, which shall have priority to the facility.
Reasonable fees are charged for room rental, audiovisual equipment and technical assistance, office assistance (photocopying etc.), cancellations, late fees, sales tax and other items as necessary. Neither UMMC nor the Jackson Medical Mall Foundation assumes liability for damages or loss of articles before, during or after an event.
If desired, groups may arrange for a caterer or restaurant to handle their catering needs, however, all catering services must have a food facility permit through the Mississippi State Department of Health. Groups are restricted from bringing their own food and beverages into the center. We adhere to State Fire Marshall limits and requirements regarding room capacity.
