Summer Experience

Living in the residence halls during summer school is a unique and enriching experience that provides advantages to our students, such as proximity to classes, outdoor adventure, great food through our meal plan options and the support of our resident advisor and front desk student staff to serve as a resource for you. Additionally, we offer programming and events to create a strong sense of community and study spaces within the building for you to focus on your academics. Living on campus this summer will allow you the opportunity to excel academically while also providing you a way to connect with other students on campus for the summer. 

Freshman Degree Students

If you are a freshman degree student during summer session or a freshman attending your first two academic semesters (fall and spring), you are required, subject to the availability of space, to live in a residence hall. Exceptions include students who are married or live with parents in the surrounding Boulder area and have permission granted in advance to commute.

You may request permission to live off campus for other reasons. Your request is considered on its merit, taking into account your individual circumstances. For information regarding freshman permission to reside off campus, contact Occupancy Management via email, by phone at 303-492-6673, or write to:

If you are a freshman admitted for summer session 2015 and intend to continue on the Boulder campus in the fall, we encourage you to submit both your summer and fall housing applications at the same time and as early as possible.
