We are a "residential campus," which means that students are required to live on campus for the first three years of their academic career. As a transfer student, the time you’ve spent on campus at another college or university is included when meeting the three year live-on requirement. The on-campus community is shaped by the influence of upper class students who lead the younger students in creating a campus culture that reflects the values of the students. For this reason, students who are sophomores and juniors are required to live on campus to assist in shaping the experiences of the students who will follow in their footsteps.
Due to the timing of transfers’ admittance to Colorado College, there are spaces available throughout the variety of residential living communities. Students transferring in as juniors have priority for the small houses and apartments. Students transferring in as sophomores may be placed in a small house, or they may also live in one of the three large residence halls where a majority of other sophomores are housed in traditional halls along with first-year students.
We are excited that you will be joining our on-campus community at Colorado College. If you have any questions, please contact our office.
