About Collins » Facilities » Buildings

All facilities are centrally located on the IU campus, near the School of Public Health gym, Indiana Memorial Union, and recreational fields.

Residents can also take advantage of Collins resources, such as the Clubhouse, Collins Library, Smith Kitchen, and other facilities.

Regardless of which building you live in, you will be a part of the lively community fostered at Collins.


The Main Quad: Three buildings, Edmondson, Cravens, and Smith, make up the beautiful main quad at the corner of 10th Street and Woodlawn Avenue. They include single, double, and triple rooms. Here you'll also find the Collins Dining Hall, the student-run Cheshire Café, a large formal lounge, the Coffeehouse, classrooms, and offices.

Brown and Greene

The Hill: The Collins community extends beyond the frequently pictured Gothic buildings on the Quad. Many new and returning residents who choose singles for their living arrangement may live in Greene or Brown--or “The Hill”--just a few blocks away. These adjacent buildings feature a well-supported computer lab and the Collins Clubhouse (comprising many of the arts studios, a cinema, game rooms, and a group dining area). The photo darkroom, video-editing lab, audio production facilities, and textiles studio all occupy brand new facilities here.


Hillcrest: The Hillcrest Apartments, a few blocks from the Quad on 10th and Fess, provide more independent living. Students who have lived at Collins for at least one year may apply to live in Hillcrest. It’s one of the ways we encourage older students to stay on as community leaders and mentors to our freshmen. In addition to a larger living space, Hillcrest residents have kitchens and bathrooms in their apartments.
