Founded in 1972, Collins is student-led with an emphasis on self-governance, the arts, and sustainability. We provide opportunities that foster intellectual exploration, encourage creative expression, and provide ample leadership opportunities.
A community of go-getters + game-changers
Our students teach classes, participate in student groups, organize events, volunteer in the community, take part in philanthropy projects, and more. These meaningful experiences help develop translatable skills that are relevant to a variety of career paths.
Historic buildings in the heart of campus
We are located at one of the most convenient and beautiful spots on campus. Our classic Gothic limestone buildings house an array of arts facilities, dining options, and study nooks. We even have a Sustainability Floor for students dedicated to environmental issues.
Collins @ Foster
Our historic buildings will be renovated during the 2020-21 academic year. New and returning residents will live in a designated space in Foster-Shea while these updates are taking place. We’re taking our Collins community spirit with us to our temporary digs!
