Don’t miss out on the convenience, connections, and camaraderie of on-campus living.

Students must first be admitted to UCCS before applying for campus housing.

The housing application opens every December 1st for the following academic year (fall move-in). The annual priority application deadline is March 15th. 

If you are currently a resident at UCCS, you do not need to submit a new application for next year! We will provide housing renewal information later in the spring semester, so watch your email inbox!

Be sure to take a look at our Village Information before starting the application, this will help you decide what options are best for you! If you are a first-year or an upper-class student who wants the traditional residential experience, look at the Summit Village Residence Halls or the Village at Alpine Valley Residence Halls. If you are over 21, an international student, or are transferring in with 30 or more credits, check out the Alpine Village Apartments.

The application includes a required deposit fee. Please make checks out to UCCS.
Cash/check payments for the Application Fee/Deposit/Housing Pre-payment can be mailed to:

First-Year Living Requirement

UCCS has an on-campus residency requirement for first-year students admitted for fall and spring academic terms (excluding summer terms).  First-year students 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.
