FIRST-YEAR STUDENT HOUSING PROJECT
Dec. 2019 and opening in fall 2021 when the first students move in,
the CU Denver neighborhood on the Auraria Campus is getting a whole new look.
NEW HOME AWAY FROM HOME
portion of the recreation field along Larimer Street, between 11th and 12th
Streets, is being transformed into a new student housing, dining and Learning
The City Heights Residence Hall will be home away from home to first-year students looking for
an affordable housing option, but the project scope goes far beyond that.
HEART OF OUR NEIGHBORHOOD
space creates a communal heart for the entire campus community. The gathering
areas, dining options and student access to academic support, as well as a
variety of co-curricular success services, are designed to support all students
and help them build new connections with each other, faculty and staff.
WATCH US GROW
recreation field and the area around it is a very busy place. Behind the fencing,
construction crews are building a three-winged structure with two residential wings and a three story
Learning Commons. There's plenty of heavy equipment and activity on site, restricting pedestrian
and vehicle access as needed.
before we know it, the dust will be gone, the new spaces will be ready to
welcome the campus community and the transformation will be complete.
