Housing & Residential Experience

Welcome Home!

The Office of Housing and Residential Experience thrives to enhances students’ personal, interpersonal, and intellectual growth by creating safe and inclusive environments, producing innovative programs and services, and fostering meaningful relationships. 

Returning Student Selection

Colorado College requires all first-year students, sophomores, and juniors to live on campus. Students participating in study away programs or who have received approval are exempt from this requirement. The exemption process for the 2024-25 academic year will open in Block 5 for any students required to live on campus.

Rising sophomore and junior housing selection will occur during Blocks 6 and 7. The housing agreement will open on Monday, Jan. 29, 2024. This year, students interested in living in Language Houses and other LLC Communities will be first to select spaces. Specific selection dates will be shared later this semester. Residential Experience will offer several information sessions regarding housing selection throughout Blocks 5 and 6.

The Info Sessions are as followed:

Thursday, February 1st at 2pm in Gaylord Hall (East Entry of Worner)

Wednesday, February 7th at 3pm in Bemis Great Hall

Friday, February 9th at 2pm in JLK McHugh Commons (Above the preserve)

Wednesday, February 28th at 2pm in South Commons

Tuesday, March 5th at 4pm in South Commons

Tuesday, March 26th at 4pm in JLK McHugh Commons (Above the preserve)

2023-24 Housing Waitlist Information

The Fall 2023 Housing Change and Waitlists are also live via the StarRez Housing Portal.  There are 4 different housing waitlists available for students based on population and needs: 

  • Single Room Waitlist: for any student who currently has a room assignment for 2023-2024 but would like to move to a single room 

  • Apartment Waitlist: For any student who currently has a room assignment for 2023-2024 but would like to potentially move to an apartment.   

  • Room Change list: For any student who currently has a room assignment for 2023-2024 but would like to change to any type of room or has already identified a swap. 

  • Fall 2023 Housing Waitlist: For any student who is required to live on campus for the 2023-2024 academic year but missed the housing selection process 

All Waitlists are on a first come, first serve basis based on room type available.  For apartment spaces and double rooms, we will first reach out to current occupant(s) to name an additional resident and then go to the appropriate waitlist to fill any open bed spaces
