Housing and Dining Services helps to serve your student’s most basic needs, while at the same time providing important support during this transition in your student’s life.  Being a part of the CSU community provides students with the opportunity to develop important interpersonal and problem solving skills, engage in educational programming, diverse learning experiences, and encourages students to be a part of fostering a healthy sense of independence and interdependence.

University Housing

Your student’s residence hall will be their home away from home.  The halls are designed to provide programs and services that will enhance your student’s campus experience.

Apartment Life at CSU provides students with access to apartments that are affordable and convenient to campus.  These living communities provide students with programs and services that foster personal growth, educational opportunities, and increased global awareness.  University apartments are a great option for students who have fulfilled the university live-in requirement.

Colorado State University is the first university in the world to achieve platinum status, under the STARS (Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System) rating system.

CSU Housing and Dining Services helps to support these efforts through a variety of programs and services. To learn more about the many opportunities for your student to become involved in sustainability initiatives – see Housing and Dining Services’ website.
