RESIDENCE LIFE

LEARNING THROUGH LIVING AT MINES

We believe living on campus fosters student learning, development, and personal growth.

We show dedication to our students by creating experiences and physical spaces that recognize the unique challenges and opportunities of being an Oredigger at 鶹ӳ.

We are committed to providing intentional learning by facilitating a safe, inclusive, and academically focused environment.

We challenge and encourage students to be critical thinkers and civically-engaged leaders in a diverse global community.

What's Happening in Residence Life?

First-Year Housing Application – Opens April 1 at 10:00AM MST

The First-Year Housing Application opens on April 1 at 10:00AM MST for incoming, first-year students and transfer students for the 2024-2025 academic year. The application is in the Housing Portal, which is linked in students’ Trailhead accounts and my.mines.edu accounts.

Students will not have access to the Housing Portal until they have submitted their Admissions Enrollment Deposit (or waiver) and it has been processed. Please allow a few business days for your deposit to be processed.

The housing application is divided into 3 phases, and the first phase of the application is available to students beginning April 1 through May 19. Applications are NOT processed on a first-come, first-served basis; there is NO NEED to rush to start your application on April 1. If you are still waiting for your deposit to be processed once the application goes live, that’s okay!

Learn more about about first-year housing and the application timeline on our website: /residence-life/first-year-housing/

 

Summer Housing Application – Opens April 1 at 10:00AM MST

The Summer Housing Application opens on April 1 at 10:00AM MST for current 鶹ӳ students who plan to complete summer coursework after the Spring 2024 semester concludes this May. Students will be housed in Weaver Towers and are required to commit to a minimum of a 3-week stay. The application is in the Housing Portal, which is linked in students’ Trailhead accounts and my.mines.edu accounts.

Students who require housing for Summer Session I must complete their Summer Housing application by May 1. Students who require housing for Summer Session II must complete their Summer Housing application by June 1.

Students who will move to Summer Housing from their current Residence Hall or 1750 Jackson assignment will be granted an extension for their move-out. These students do not need to vacate their current assignments until their summer assignments are ready.

Please see our Summer Housing webpage for more information: /residence-life/summer-housing/
