Welcome to the Collegium!

Operated by the Office 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 per semester allows Commuter Life staff to plan great events (delicious food and good times together), buy food for you to purchase at a discounted price via the Food Bar, and 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 & Mac 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.

How to Join

Collegium membership is $60/semester or $100/year. We "give that money back to you" via food events, an inexpensive food bar, and/or gas money saved! It's a great community, and we'd love to have you join us!

If you would like to sign up for the school year, please print and sign both documents below and bring them by the Collegium front desk during the semester, or mail them to Commuter Life (address on form) during break or interterm.
