Welcome to the Collegium!

Established in 2004 and operated by the Department of Commuter Life, The Collegium is a home-away-from-home especially for commuter students, with a full kitchen, food bar, computers, printing, wireless and super comfy furniture. Located in the Upper SUB, it is also central to campus and has a great community vibe.

The small membership fee ($75 per semester or $125 per year) allows Commuter Life staff to plan great events (delicious food and good times together) and buy food for you to purchase at a discounted price via the Food Bar, and it provides a great staff team that not only cares for you but also takes care of our incredible home.

Community Living Space to Rest, Work and Connect

Come relax and sink into a comfy leather chair, take a nap on our couch with a soft blanket or curl up with a book by the fire on a chilly winter day. Grab an economical, fast lunch from our honor bar or store your own meal in the fridge. You can even enjoy cooking lunch with a friend in our beautiful kitchen.

We’re wireless, but if you don’t have a computer, you can use one of ours — PCs and Macs available. Printing is a breeze — run in, check email, print a paper, head to class. Connect with a friend and study together at one of our study areas.

Have some lunch at one of our community family lunches. We also celebrate birthdays monthly. Meet new friends or bring a guest. Our friendly, helpful staff are here for you.
