University Commons opened in 2006. It is primarily an upperclass coed, corridor style building, housing about 120 students and was designed for upper level/independent living. University Commons features lounges on each floor with double and single rooms with adjoining shared bathrooms. General room amenities include self-controlled heating and air conditioning, and a microfridge unit. This multiuse building is aptly named since it is shared by Faculty Student Association offices, University Bookstore, Convenience Store, Cranston Marché, and Starbucks.
