Anything But Common

Harbor Freight - University Commons

Whether you want to heft a kettlebell, socket wrench, bowling ball or Grande Caramel Macchiato (hey, no judgment here), University Commons has you covered. Located east of US 131 at the northeast corner of Stadium Drive and Drake Road, this 200,000-square-foot center sits in the heart of Kalamazoo’s vibrant west side.

University Commons is mere minutes away from Western Michigan University, the Western Michigan University Business Technology & Research Park and WMU’s state-of-the-art Engineering College,” said Terry Patterson, Treystar Retail Leasing & Development. “It’s a convenient and ideal location that caters to our college students, as well as individuals and families doing business and traveling along Stadium Drive.”

  • Planet Fitness
  • Barrett’s Smoke House
