Du Collège is a station on Orange Line of the Montreal Metro rapid transit system, operated by the Société de transport de Montréal (STM). It is located in the borough of Saint-Laurent in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.[1]

Opened on January 9, 1984, it replaced Plamondon station as the western terminus of the line, and so remained until the construction of Côte-Vertu station in 1986.

Overview[edit]

The station is a normal side platform station with an entrance at either end. The southern entrance is located in a bus loop.

The station was designed by Gilles S. Bonnetto and Jacques Garand, and contains several artworks. The northern entrance contains four stained-glass windows, one by Lyse Charland Favretti on the theme of education and three by Pierre Osterrath on the borough of Saint-Laurent, its agricultural past, and its future. The southern entrance contains another stained-glass window by Favretti representing the borough's aeronautics industry, as well as an abstract relief in brick by Aurelio Sandonato. The station's best-known architectural feature, however, is an Ionic column in the northern mezzanine.

Origin of the name[edit]

This station is named for the rue du Collège, whose name commemorates the nearby Cégep de Saint-Laurent, inaugurated as a college in 1847 and turned into a Cégep in 1974.
