Housing Renewals

Love living at UCCS? We would be delighted to have you back on campus next year! Current residents do not need to submit a new housing application or pay an additional deposit - instead, they are able to request housing for the following academic year during our annual housing renewal event. This is the best way to secure the room of your choice, so mark your calendar to attend.

What is the Renewal Period?

Renewals are your opportunity to sign up for next year's housing.  Current residents get priority in choosing their housing for the next academic year (August 2021-May 2022).  You have the option of either choosing to stay exactly where you are currently assigned or selecting a new room. This includes residents in first year housing who would like to live in the apartments next year. 

Renewal Period: March 8 - March 19

How Do Renewals Work?

  1. Prior to the renewal period, you will receive an email with your current housing assignment and a copy of the 2021-2022 housing contract.  Be sure to read the entire contract as you are committing to the next academic year and there are important deadlines you want to pay attention to!
  2. Current residents will be able to submit renewal requests virtually via appointment based upon the number of credits they have completed.* The more credits you have completed, the earlier you can schedule your renewal appointment.  The renewal email will indicate the number of credit hours you have completed.  This will inform you what "group" you are eligible to schedule in (see below for details). 
  3. If you desire to request a meal plan for next year, you will be able to indicate this when you renew housing for an assignment in the apartments.  Should you choose to stay in VAV or Summit, you will automatically receive an all access meal plan. 

*Please note: credit hours are based on completion at the end of Fall '20 semester
