It's More Than Just a Residence Hall. It's a Community!

What is CCI Commons?

CCI Commons is the central hub for activities and information related to the College of Communication and Information at Kent State University. Students in our community live with others who are studying the same major or similar fields of interest, allowing an open exchange of ideas and experiences that go beyond the classroom. Weekly programs offer students a peek into various career possibilities and current practices in the broad field of communications.

The CCI Commons is located in Olson Hall and is open to all College of Communication and Information majors and pre-majors in the schools of Communication Studies, Journalism and Mass Communication, Library and Information Science and Visual Communication Design.

We’re hard working students but we also like to have fun!
