As part of our ongoing response to COVID-19, university operations, including housing and dining, will follow public health guidance from Colorado and Larimer County and evolve as those recommendations change. We recognize that this fall will be different than previous years and will continue to update our website,, as these important details are finalized.

Message from Engineering RLC staff, July 2020

Dear Engineering Residential Learning Community (ERLC) Students,

We are very excited to welcome you to campus this August and to have you join our community! We have been working hard to make necessary adjustments to your Learning Community experience in order to meet the guidelines put forth by health officials and the university. 

With every announcement made related to adjustments for Fall 2020, we want you to know that the Engineering RLC is committed to fostering a great experience for our students. To preserve this experience, the Engineering RLC has committed to making a few modifications for the fall, and we want you to know what you can expect from your learning community experience.  Following physical distancing guidelines, we are planning modified versions of our past community experiences and services including, but not limited to:

  • Engineering tutoring options – virtual options will exist, as well as small group face-to-face options pending group options are allowed by health & safety officials;
  • Creation of an ERLC Community “Shell” in Canvas – this will be a virtual, one-stop-shop for you to connect with your fellow ERLC peers, find information about upcoming events, and share your ideas for future programs and events;
  • Connection with Engineering Peer Mentors, Graduate Academic Coaches (GACs) and ERLC Faculty-in-Residence – while face-to-face interactions may still be limited, our ERLC team will still be available to you virtually to share their advice and expertise in how to navigate life as an Engineering student, how to connect with additional resources you may need to be successful, as well as just chat about your career interests and Engineering passions;
  • Opportunities to get involved and learn more about different areas of Engineering – we will continue to look for ways to connect with ERLC students and to connect ERLC students to each other through various virtual events and programs, as well as connect with you to hear your ideas about activities and events of interest to YOU!

One modification to the Engineering RLC experience relates to designated housing that may have been previously communicated through the RLC application process. University Housing is following the direction of the university and local health officials to determine the best way to move forward with assignments.  Normally, Engineering RLC students are required to live in designated floors within either Academic Village (AV) – Engineering Hall or Edwards Hall; however, at this point, the Engineering RLC is suspending that requirement in an effort to support University Housing’s current assignment process modification that was recently communicated to all incoming students. 

Please understand that there is no guarantee that Engineering RLC students will be assigned to AV-Engineering or Edwards Hall given the direction University Housing must take in keeping student’s health and safety a priority. Regardless of where a student is assigned within housing, they will still be able to participate in the Engineering RLC, and we will work closely with our University Housing partners in supporting the residential experience of students within their assigned hall.  While things may look different in the fall, the Engineering RLC, in partnership with other residential learning communities and University Housing, is committed to providing experiential components that will positively contribute to your CSU experience.
