Opening in 2020 and located at the main entrance to Ursinus College at Main Street and Fifth Avenue, the Commons will be the new welcoming gateway to the campus, and a hub for social activity and student life.

The Commons will welcome visitors to campus.

The facility will be designed to build upon Ursinus’s designation as a destination campus for students, faculty, staff, and friends and neighbors, and aims to strengthen connections with the local Collegeville community and beyond. It will offer meeting and event spaces, a new home for the college bookstore, an office suite for Ursinus admission staff and counselors, and a coffee house designed with an eye for vibrant and diverse programming.

Perhaps most importantly, the Commons (which incorporates historic Keigwin Hall on Main Street) will connect generations of Ursinus students, serving as a welcome center for prospective students and their families when they first step foot on campus, and a gathering place for the thousands of alumni that still call Ursinus home.
