Offices & Annex

Center Desk and Lobby Area

The Collins Center Desk is located in the lobby of Edmondson. It’s an important administrative center for our residents and often a beehive of activity.

The Center Desk staff is on hand to answer your questions about residential living.

Room check-in and check-out are both completed here. Mail and packages are delivered to the desk, making the Center Desk a daily stop for most residents. Locked out of your room? You can stop by the Center Desk for help. You can also sign out keys arts facilities and the Smith Kitchen after completing training.

Food, clothing, or book drive donation boxes are often set up at the free literature table nearby, where you can also pick up IU, Bloomington, and Collins publications and other info.

Duty Office

The Duty Office suite is located just off the Formal Lounge (the end of the room near the Steinway piano), on the first floor of Edmondson Hall on the Main Quad. Come here to chat with our Student Services Assistant or discover how to connect with other LLC staff members.

The Duty Office is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and is headquarters and resource center of the LLC. Come here to pick up programming forms, apply for open positions, learn about Collins courses, sign up for events, check out media equipment, and ask questions or get help with anything Collins-related. Applications for Student Government positions and jobs at Collins, as well as other paperwork are usually turned in to the Duty Office.

This office is a vital part of the LLC and is the best place to come if you have questions (as a prospective resident or a current one)!
