Residence Hall & Dining Eligibility

Housing & Dining is offered on campus to students during Maymester (Session M) and Sessions A-D. The housing is designed for single students who are enrolled in either regular CU Boulder Summer Session courses or in three (3) or more credits in the Division of Continuing Education. Unfortunately, on-campus housing and dining options are not available for Augmester (Session G).

How to Apply

The summer housing application is anticipated to open in April 2021. To get started with the application, you will need your CU login and IdentiKey password.

The application process and deposit for residence hall accommodations and confirming university admissions are separate from one another; one does not guarantee the other. If you would like more information about admission to the university or confirmation procedures, visit the Office of Admissions website. For information about applying for on-campus housing, visit the Housing and Dining website.

Research and Internship Students
