The Colony

The Colony apartments offer a great community experience for transfer and continuing residential students (freshmen are not eligible). Colony apartments are fully furnished and, depending on the size of the apartment, accommodate 3 to 4 residents. A thriving community of upperclassmen, The Colony has much to offer, including a pool, community area and an outdoor basketball court. Colony residents will have many opportunities to get to know their neighbors through quality living area events and programs each semester.

Colony is the largest living area at CBU. In order to make each student's experience better The Colony has been divided into 3 sections: North, East and West Colony. The apartment types are the same throughout The Colony as a whole. The buildings' letters differentiate what section of The Colony you prefer to be assigned to. 

Global Village

East Colony is home to Global Village. This is a living and learning community where American and international students have the opportunity to intentionally live together and learn about cultures from around the world. Students who have lived in Global Village have shared that their experience helped them to be more culturally sensitive and to have a greater global perspective on life.

Each apartment comes furnished with an extra-long twin bed, desk, desk chair and dresser for each student, as well as a dining table and chairs, sofa, coffee table, lamps, sofa chair and an end table for the apartment.
