Welcome to the IC3

Our Intercultural Center & Commuter Cottage (IC3) is 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. Join us at the IC3 to connect with one another, plan or participate in intercultural events, and advance social justice issues.

Our Fall 2022 hours are Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 7:30 p.m., except University holidays.

The Commuter Lounge

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. Amenities include a kitchenette, lockers, and computers with webcams, and printers. The Lounge is reserved for the sole use for commuters and graduate students who are also more than welcome to use the entire cottage.

Cross-Cultural Events

Lasell recognizes that diversity in student body, faculty, and staff is vital to a quality education and preparing students to succeed in an increasingly diverse and global society. Thus, the IC3 promotes cross-cultural understanding and inclusivity through respectful social engagement and experiencing different cultures, traditions, and viewpoints in a diverse and welcoming environment.
