Why Students Like to Live at UCCS

Did you know that national research shows that students who live on campus excel more academically, and graduate faster than those who live off campus? Living on campus can provide a positive college transition and more successful academic and social experience. Enjoy the convenience of living minutes away from everything you'll need as a student at UCCS - from your classes and the University Center, to the Library and Recreation Center. Make friends with classmates throughout the village and have fun with exciting programs and campus activities organized exclusively for Housing Village residents!

On-campus Living Requirement

UCCS has an on-campus residency requirement for freshmen students admitted for fall and spring academic terms (excluding summer terms).  Freshmen who are under the age of 20 and have less than 30 hours completed college course work will be required to live in UCCS Residence Life and Housing’s residence halls, unless they meet one of the exemption guidelines.  Colorado Residents of El Paso county may request to exempt from this residency requirement only if living with a parent/guardian; however, it is highly encouraged that all freshmen explore living on the UCCS campus for positive college transition and more successful academic social experience.

For additional information on the residency requirement, as well as to access the Exemption form, CLICK HERE.
