Boulder is a vibrant and diverse community, and a great place to study, work, and explore.
On campus you’ll be able to grow your community, explore inventive thought and turn your ideas into reality. From the Rocky Mountains to our engaging downtown, Boulder offers something for everyone.
With many neighboring towns in Boulder’s backyard, and Denver less than an hour away, opportunities for living and exploring are limitless. Whether you want a bigger-city feel, or a smaller town feel, there's a perfect fit for you.
Housing Options for Graduate Students
For graduate students, families, committed couples, single parents, and CU faculty and staff, the university maintains furnished and unfurnished one-, two-, or three-bedroom apartments a short walk from campus. A limited number of efficiency or studio apartments are available to single graduate students who are 21 or older. Prices here are less expensive than private rentals in the Boulder community. Eligible applicants must be registered as full-time students. Only students and members of their immediate families may reside here. These apartment complexes offer onsite laundry facilities, playgrounds, and access to the day care center for housing residents.
Off-Campus Housing & Neighborhood Relations is a function of CU Student Government (CUSG) and is your only university-affiliated resource for finding housing. Our office is here to help you with all aspects of living off campus, from searching for an apartment and roommate, understanding Boulder housing options and providing free lease reviews with our staff attorney, to navigating roommate disagreements, understanding Boulder ordinances and advocating for your rights as a student and tenant.
Graduate Students also have access to Ralphie’s List, the only university-affiliated resource for apartment listings.
