Students who live off-campus are encouraged to be involved in the university community. All student programs and services at TWU are available to commuting students.

The Marlie Snider Collegia Program is a campus community open to all commuting students of TWU. Here you will find all the comforts of home (great atmosphere, comfy couches, microwaves, computers, fireplace, coffee, kitchens, lounge areas, dining spaces, and study areas with reference materials). The Collegia Program allows commuters to connect with other students, staff and faculty in the rigour of classes and home life. Collegia Program Assistants (CAs) support commuters in their transition to and development at Trinity Western. CAs also help organize events in the collegiums throughout the year.

Hours of operation:  7am to 7pm, Monday -Thursday, 7am - 5 pm on Friday.

*The Collegia Program facilities are closed on all major holidays and during Independent Student Week. You can apply for membership to undergraduate collegiums from the student portal. For membership in the Graduate Collegium, please ask a student leader in the Graduate Collegium for a membership card.
