Ionad Chaluim Chille Ìle ('The Islay Columba Centre') is a Gaelic medium college on the shores of Loch Indaal, on Islay, in Scotland. Named after Saint Columba (Calum Cille), it was founded in 2002 as part of the University of the Highlands and Islands, and is in a partnership with Sabhal Mòr Ostaig (Skye).

The Centre teaches Gaelic language, culture and heritage by offering Gaelic classes, short courses, and bachelor's degrees through its partnership with SMO. The Center has a Gaelic library and raises money by renting out rooms.[1]

The campus is confusingly named, since one of the campus on Skye is known as "Arainn Chaluim Chille".
