Description:
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 .

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

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

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.
