In 2018 Colby College opened the Bill & Joan Alfond Main Street Commons living and learning community that offers apartment-style residences in the heart of downtown Waterville. During the summer, the Commons is available to summer guests looking for alternative housing options with additional amenities. These beautiful, air-conditioned apartments feature four or six bedrooms, full kitchens, living rooms, and two bathrooms. All bedrooms have full-sized beds. In addition, the Commons offers various lounges and meeting spaces, laundry facilities, a fitness center, and a wellness center.

Conveniently located on Main Street, the Commons is near many outstanding restaurants, distinctive shops, the Waterville Opera House, and Railroad Square Cinema. A complimentary shuttle is available to transport guests to campus, which is located less than two miles from the Commons. If your group is interested in reserving space in the Commons, please contact the Special Programs Office at 207-859-4730 or [email protected]
