Whether you’re an alumnus, current student, member of the faculty and staff, donor, or neighbor, you’re a valuable part of the CU Denver community. Help us celebrate the last 50 years and a future that works for all.
Housing at the community is available to students attending University of Colorado Denver, the Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the Community College of Denver.
The chances of acquiring the apartment of the choice you desire is determined by the timing that your completed application and signed contract is received and executed. Soonest always gets better results.
As part of the application process, you will be asked to choose a specific suite within Lynx Crossing or City Heights. You will be assigned roommates and/or suitemates based on who also selects to live in that suite.
After reviewing documentation pertaining to grants, loans, and scholarships, you’ll have the best idea of where you stand. You can request and arrange that with your institution's financial aid officer.
Typically, tuition and fees will be paid first and then the remainder will cover housing costs. Most loans that consider the expense of on-campus housing should cover the cost of housing.
In addition to selecting a room type, first-year students are required to select a meal plan. There are three meal plan dining options to choose from.
The Broncos Plan: 19 meals per week and includes $40 flex spending per month
The Nuggets Plan: 14 Meals per week and includes $60 flex spending per month
The Rockies Plan: 10 Meals per week and includes $80 flex spending per month
Flex spending funds can be used at Eat Foof Market, Einstein's, Qdoba, or the City Heights Dining Hall. All upperclassmen residents have the option to choose from any of the 5 meal plans featured in our CU Onsite Dining Hall Meal Plans, or opt-out of the meal plan option.
The weekly allotted all-you-care-to-eat meals must be used within the week or they will be forfeited. Although non-refundable and non-transferable, unused flex spending balances can be carried over from month to month through the term of the contract. Any unused credit balance at the end of the contract term will be forfeited.
Roommates and suitemates are assigned based on room selection during the application process. Students who choose the same room and/or suite will automatically be assigned as roommates/suitemates.
Roommates are classified as students who share the same bedroom space. Suitemates are classified as students who live in the same suite, but do not share a bedroom. For the 2020 – 2021 academic year, all students will live in single-bedroom spaces without roommates. Most students will still be assigned suitemates for the 2020 – 2021 academic year.
Students are encouraged to communicate with their assigned roommates or suitemates through the Housing portal to being building community prior to arriving at the residence hall.
