22-year-old Collins joined Stoke from Premiership side Aston Villa on a free transfer in February of last year, but has made only four league appearances for the Potteries club.
He is now set to provide U's boss Roy McFarland with cover for injured former Manchester United defender Andrew Duncan, and Collins will be with the club until September 12.
"Lee provides defensive cover while Andy Duncan completes a return to league action," said McFarland.
The defender will be available for Cambridge's next six league matches, and will be hoping to help the team improve on a disappointing start that saw them lose 1-0 at home to Bury on Saturday.
