Village Information

Explore Our Housing Options

Our campus community features three distinct village areas across the bluffs. We recommend Summit Village or Village at Alpine Valley for first-year or upper-class students seeking a traditional residential experience. Please note that first-year housing facilities are closed over winter break.

The upper-class Alpine Village Apartments offer an excellent option for students over 21, international students, or those transferring with 30 or more credits.

Each of our floor plans includes internal bathrooms shared only by your suitemates or roommates—there are no community bathrooms here. Students appreciate our suite-style living, which provides the ideal blend of privacy and opportunities to study, relax, play, and socialize.

Housing Options

Summit Village at night
Everything you need is less than a five-minute walk from Summit Village. Going to class, a campus concert, to study, to eat or shop is as simple as putting on your shoes. Summit Village is open to all students who enjoy the traditional residence hall experience. Enjoy programs, entertainment and support you won’t find at an off-campus apartment.
UCCS housing
Located on the north end of campus, these residence halls give easy access to hiking and the campus Recreation Center throughout the nearby bluffs. Each building features a large community lounge area on every floor to allow for the ability to better connect with other students on your floor, as well as a great place to study and enjoy the gorgeous views of Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods.

Want the features and freedom of apartment living along with the activities and convenience that you would expect from traditional on-campus housing? Designed specifically for our Sophomore through Graduate Student population, Alpine offers fun programming designed to help you meet your neighbors, succeed in school, and move on to life after UCCS.

Benefits of on-campus living

  1. Convenience

    You are minutes away from your classes, the library, the parking garage, University Center, the Recreation Center, the Bookstore, and many other places that you will frequent while being a student at UCCS. Spend more time doing the things you want and need to do instead of commuting through the Colorado Springs traffic.

  2. Academic Success

    National research shows that students who live on campus excel more academically, and graduate faster than those who live off campus.

  3. No Monthly Bills

    Students pay for housing on a semester basis. There is no need to save for monthly rent, high speed internet access, basic phone service, gas, electricity, furniture, water, and basic cable – it’s included in the price. Because you pay by semester, you do not have to worry about the rising cost of utilities in the winter. And…you don't have to be concerned about the roommate that doesn't come up with their share of the rent and utility bills.

  4. Safety

    We have Resident Assistants and a professional staff member on call every night of the year. Our campus police department is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with a night security officer in Housing. Campus Police provide escorts for students to and from classes, Housing, and parking when requested.

  5. Campus Activities

    Our Resident Assistants and student organizations offer programs and activities in the Housing Villages for residents. It is easy to get involved in social activities like dances, concerts and trips or in leadership opportunities like the Residence Hall Association and National Residence Hall Honorary.

  6. Make Friends

    Your classmates are down the hall, and on the floors above and below you. Organize a study group, watch television together, participate in intramural sports, host an interactive gaming tournament or just get together at the Lodge for meals.

  7. ENT

    UCCS has partnered with Ent to provide students with the Lion OneCard Program.

  8. Sustainability

    Residence Life is committed to supporting efforts to make UCCS sustainable. In each of the Housing Facilities, there are waste containers and single-stream recycling containers.
