Application & Assignments

Housing Availability Announcement

Due to increasing demand and limited supply for campus housing, we are no longer accepting applications from students not required to live on campus per the housing requirement. First year students and other students required to live on campus are guaranteed housing and we always accommodate as many other applicants as we can. Campus apartments are also full and there are a number of pending applications seeking assignment. You are welcome to apply for an apartment as a waitlist applicant but please know the chance of being assigned before the beginning of the academic year in August is low and we strongly encourage to use the resources below.

The Off-Campus Life Office has resources via their website that can assist with pursuing housing in the Fort Collins community, including RentalSearch. Use RentalSearch to search for properties for rent, rooms for rent, roommates, and post yourself as a roommate or if you have a room to rent.

Off-Campus Life will be hosting two hybrid Roommate Meet and MatchesJuly 15th and 22nd, at 4 p.m. MT. Zoom information is hyperlinked to its respective date; in-person meeting will be in the Lory Student Center, exact room will be updated on the Off-Campus Life website. Additionally, students are encouraged to call (970-491-2248), email (ocl@colostate.edu), or visit Off-Campus Life (Lory Student Center, room 274) to learn which apartment/property managers still have rooms available for rent and to learn about other ways to find off-campus housing.

If you are still interested in on campus housing after classes begin in August, you are welcome to contact University Housing to see if late cancellations or other changes have opened some availability.
