We believe living on campus fosters student learning, development, and personal growth.

We show dedication to our students by creating experiences and physical spaces that recognize the unique challenges and opportunities of being an Oredigger at Colorado School of Mines.

We are committed to providing intentional learning by facilitating a safe, inclusive, and academically focused environment.

We challenge and encourage students to be critical thinkers and civically-engaged leaders in a diverse global community.

What's Coming Up Next for Residence Life?

Spring 2024 Housing Applications
Students seeking housing for the Spring 2024 semester may submit their applications in the Housing Portal beginning November 1 at 10:00AM MST. Residence Life is accepting applications for the Residence Halls (first-year students), 1750 Jackson Street (second-year students), and Mines Park Apartments (upper-division students).

  • Residence Halls: First-year students who deferred their enrollment until Spring 2024 are encouraged to apply for an available space in our Residence Halls! Students returning from their First-Year Study Abroad Experience (FYSAE) should plan to submit their housing application again to ensure that all information is up to date. Residence Life will additionally be in direct communication with the FYSAE cohort via their Mines email. 


  • 1750 Jackson Street: There are limited spaces currently available in Jackson for interested second-year students; however, we anticipate a few more options becoming available as students vacate Jackson at the end of December to study abroad in the Spring! Second-year students are encouraged to apply and see what is available!


  • Mines Park Apartments: Limited spaces at Mines Park will be available for the Spring! We anticipate having a few vacancies to fill as students graduate and move out; however, offers will continue to be limited due to the ongoing renovations at Mines Park. It is unlikely that new applicants will be offered renovated units due to the current construction timeline, and students will be required to move units during the Spring semester to accommodate renovations. Please consider the redevelopment project prior to applying!
