Commuter Life & The Collegium

At ź컢ͼ, over 55% of our student body is made up of commuter students. We understand that commuter students may face unique challenges on a daily basis that an on-campus resident may not. That’s the inspiration behind the Commuter Life Program!

The Commuter Life team is dedicated to providing commuter students with resources to make them feel right at home while on campus. One way we do this is by providing a space that is 100% dedicated to commuters – The Collegium. This space is designed to feel like a home away from home, complete with a full-sized fridge, microwave, Keurig, lockers, TV and a separate quiet study space. It’s the perfect retreat for before, between and after classes.

The Collegium is located in the Brown Student Center, right above the Chick-Fil-A. The space is open and free for any commuters to use Monday – Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
