In partnership with Student Involvement and Leadership, The CAVE opened in Fall 2013 an on campus community for commuter and transfer students. The CAVE is a great place to hang out, meet other students, catch up with friends, study, enjoy lunch, or rest between classes. Though it is called “The CAVE” the physical space is vibrant and the diverse community members create a warm and welcoming space for all. After 5pm and on the weekends, The CAVE hosts concerts, performances, and club meetings.

J-Term Hours:

Tuesday – Friday 10am – 3pm


The basement of the Anderson University Center
