Welcome to the Collegium at Biola University!
Latin for "gathering place," the Collegium is home-away-from-home to Biola's off-campus community.
Think beautiful home—full kitchen, 25¢ coffee, low-cost food bar, fireplace, computers, couches, printing, fun events, and a lot of friendly people—all conveniently located in the Upper Student Union. Membership is $55/semester or $90/year. We "give that money back to you" via food events, an inexpensive food bar, and/or gas money saved! It's a great community, and we'd love to have you join us!
