Live On: On-campus living a great option for returning students

Dear Parents and Families:

We hope your student has enjoyed living in the residence halls thus far, despite all of the challenges we’ve faced this year. While we’ve only just kicked off the spring semester, it’s time to start thinking about housing plans for the 2021-2022 academic year. The Fort Collins community offers many housing options, and among those we want to encourage your student to consider living on campus in the residence halls again next year. The higher average GPAs (including this year), prime location, guaranteed housing, and 24/7 staff support are all great benefits of living in the residence halls.

The Returning Student Housing Application is now open and allows current hall residents the opportunity to easily apply to live in the residence halls next year, select the exact room of their choice, and have access to designated, premium spaces for returning students. These include Laurel Village Alpine, Aspen Hall, Parmelee 4th floor lofts, single rooms, and Open Housing in Summit Hall. Returning students also have access to the standard 10, 14, and 21 meal plans as well as the U Meal Plan, which includes 5 meal plans per week, 20 bonus meals, and $150 RamCash.

New this year, the Returning Student Housing Application is also open to students with a 2020-2021 housing exemption! This group has access to the same perks and options listed above.

The Returning Student Application is open now through March 31, and all applicants will be entered into a drawing to win a grand prize of free room & board for next academic year!

If your student is interested in more independent living, they may also want to consider the on-campus Aggie Village Apartments. Aggie Village offers furnished studio, 1, 2, 3, and 4-bedroom units; academic year leases; and the option to choose your own roommates or be paired with them. The Aggie Village application is open year-round and it tends to fill quickly, so interested students should apply early and consider putting in a backup application for the residence halls (one deposit holds a student’s place for both). Keep in mind that Aggie Village applicants who have lived in the residence halls for at least two years receive priority consideration.
