Office of Housing and Conferences


Housing and Conferences collaborates with RLCA to create inclusive, secure, and well-maintained environments conducive to holistic student development, learning, and success. Our office administers student room assignment processes including housing agreements, contracts, room selection, and waitlists, and manages the maintenance, custodial, renovation, and preservation of residential communities. This office also administers a visiting faculty housing program and, during the summer months, implements a Conference Services program, which hosts up to 2,000 visiting camp and conference participants to the Colorado College campus each year.

We are a residential college and life in our residence halls is a central part of the holistic learning experience that characterizes a liberal arts education. Our students live in a diverse neighborhood of traditional residence halls, historic mansions and modern apartments.

The three year live-on requirement is a critical part of the Colorado College experience. Exceptions to the residential requirement are only approved if a student:

  • Is married or in a same-sex domestic partnership as substantiated by the college
  • Has dependent children living with them
  • Will live with their parent(s) or legal guardian in Colorado Springs
  • Is 23 years of age or older
  • Is a veteran
