Students at CU-Boulder soon will have additional living space and new recreational facilities at Bear Creek Apartments at Williams Village. A second 499-bed apartment building opens Aug. 16. A new Commons Building, scheduled to open in September, will house a recreation center, police annex, leasing office and multipurpose facility.

"We are very excited about the opening of Bear Creek Commons. It is our hope that students from Williams Village and Bear Creek Apartments will take advantage of this new community facility," said Elease Robbins, associate vice chancellor for student affairs and dean of students.

The fitness center, open to all fee-paying students and graduate students living at Bear Creek, will include cardiovascular equipment and free weights.

The apartments include private and shared bedrooms, study lounges and business centers, assigned parking, laundry and other on-site amenities. Rental rates include telephone, high-speed Internet services and premium satellite television services, utilities and furnishings. Bus transportation to and from campus is provided.

Bear Creek Apartments at Williams Village was constructed and is managed by a private developer, American Campus Communities. The CU Foundation facilitated and financed the development through tax-exempt revenue bonds. The University of Colorado Student Union and CU Recreation Services provided additional support for the new Commons Building.
