Lasell Intercultural Center & Commuter Cottage (IC3)

Lasell Intercultural & Commuter Cottage (IC3)The newly opened Intercultural Center & Commuter Cottage (IC3) has quickly become one of the most popular social gathering spots on campus, a vibrant hub for diverse students from every background to meet up, network, and have fun. All who bring an attitude of inclusivity and respect are welcome here and are encouraged to use the IC3 to connect with one another, plan or participate in intercultural events, and advance social justice issues.

The IC3 is also a home away from home for our commuting students. The Commuter Lounge, on the ground floor of the IC3, includes space to study, relax, and enjoy casual conversation, as well as other amenities for commuters, e.g., a kitchenette, lockers, and computers. The Lounge is reserved for sole use for commuters and graduate students, who are also more than welcome to use the entire cottage.
