The three-time national award winning Collegia spaces offer home-like environments in which commuter and transfer students can renew themselves between classes, meet with classmates and faculty in a relaxed setting, have conversations with friends, enjoy a snack or join in a special activity. The warm and attractive Collegia environments include small kitchens, comfortable sofas and reading lamps, study tables, computers, printers, newspapers, books, and access to snacks from an honor bar.
Each Collegium is continuously staffed by undergraduate and graduate students who provide a welcoming presence to students and serve as a resource for them. Occasional special events such as barbecues, pancake breakfasts, career counseling nights, and wellness demonstrations bring the community together and help establish relationships. The focus, however, is less on "doing" and more on "being," allowing the community to develop organically at a pace and depth that is authentic and meaningful for students.
Pick the collegium that is right for you and come to the space to enroll with a staff member. Commuter Students may enroll in only one collegium. Enrollment is free and begins the first day of the quarter.
