Specially designed with engineering and applied science students in mind, a new residential community is launching in Williams Village in fall 2023. 

Engineering Connections Residential Community 

Our first-year engineering and applied science students will live in Engineering Connections, a vibrant, supportive community that includes enhanced academic, co-curricular, social and wellness opportunities. Students will live in Williams Village East, Williams Village North and Stearns East residence halls.  

Residential Academic Programs  

Visit the campus Housing website for more information on RAPs and other living learning communities, as well as information on how to apply for a space in the residence halls. 

Within Engineering Connections, students can choose to participate in one of our residential academic programs. RAP students live together in the same floors of a residence hall, sharing academic experiences through on-site seminar classes, faculty support and activities that reinforce the academic theme. 

Williams Village North Hall — Engineering Honors RAP 

The Engineering Honors RAP provides an educational experience that matches the abilities and ambitions of some of the very best students in CU Engineering. 

Williams Village North Hall – Global Engineering RAP 

The Global Engineering RAP provides a Spanish-language community that focuses on global engineering projects and IT-driven intercultural communications.
