Commuting to SU
Five Collegia provide beautiful and welcoming "home away from home" environments that support the day-to-day needs of the complex lives of commuters through study space, kitchen facilities and snack system, access to campus resources, computers, books and newspapers.
One Collegium serves freshmen commuters from all programs enabling a focus on that important transition to college and building relationships with other students.
Other Collegia serve particular academic populations, such as the Reidy for junior and senior students and the McGoldrick collegium for graduate, adult learner undergraduates. Learn more.
