Freshmen have the option of living in the Engineering Academic Village, a living and learning community, offering students valuable opportunities for even greater faculty-student interaction. The Academic Village facilities include student housing, multimedia classrooms, engineering design studios, project rooms, advising offices, and a dining hall. In addition, graduate teaching assistants and engineering staff live within the residence hall to provide students with support.

The Engineering Academic Village features double and single rooms at reasonable rates. All residents of the Academic Village Engineering Building are assessed an Academic Village Program Charge for Service.

Other on-campus housing options are also available through Housing & Dining Services, from dormitory style living to apartment living to the med communities.

Off-Campus Student Services provides on-line rental listings for apartments, condos, houses, rooms, and for those seeking roommates. Each March, they host a Housing Fair that brings together landlords, community resources, and Colorado State University offices in order to inform students about off-campus housing options.


Meal plans are available for students living on-campus and there are meal packages for students living off-campus.

Getting Places


Fort Collins local bus service, TransFort, offers a multitude of stops close to student living areas and keeps schedules that compliment class schedules. Free to full time students, this mass transportation system cuts down on pollution and brings you right to the center of campus. All TransFort buses run on either bio-diesel or compressed natural gas.
