Returning Students

Returning students are able to choose rooms across campus during Room Selection in March and April every year. The steps for room selection typically start early in the spring semester so stay informed by visiting the Housing webpage often. Specific dates for 2023-2024 Housing Selection will be posted here and on the main webpage once we finalize the Housing Selection Timeline.

General guidelines for Returning Student Housing Selection

As part of the process of living on-campus, all students must complete the Online Housing Agreement.

Housing Agreement available - TBA

Housing Agreement due - TBA

Where can I find it? Banner Student Housing (You must use your CC credentials & Google Chrome to access the agreement)

At the bottom of this page is the Housing 101 Video for students to watch and become familiar with the online room selection process.

Each student will receive a time slot to select online. All students will receive an email instructing them to log in to Banner Student Housing to view their time slot when they are ready. Time slots are randomly computer-generated within each class, however, students who have submitted their online Housing Agreement by the deadline will be given earlier time slots than the students within their class who have not submitted the agreement by the deadline.

If you are selecting a room with a roommate, you should use the earliest of the assigned time slots between the two roommates. You will not be able to access Room Selection until you have completed your online Housing Agreement. If you did not receive a time slot and feel that you should have one, contact Housing via email at 

Enter your roommate's six-digit CCID in your Banner Student Housing Preferences for Preferred Roommate Request. Note that your roommate must also select you in order for the two of you to be able to choose a room together. You will see the word "match" and the name of your preferred roommate(s) when they have also entered you as their preferred roommate.

When timeslots are released, you will be able to view the available buildings and rooms by logging into Banner Student Housing. Our website has information about each building in selection as well as floor plans to assist you.

Here you can keep track of which rooms have not yet been chosen, and you can also unofficially walk through the room selection process in preparation for the actual event during your assigned time slot. We urge you to visit this site early to become familiar with the process and ask any questions you might have so that you are prepared when it comes time to actually select your room. Once room selection begins, you'll want to monitor the site frequently to see what rooms have been selected so that, when it's your turn to choose a room, you know which ones are still available. You can log in any time, but you won't be able to select a room until your designated time slot.

It's important that you have a list of preferred rooms handy so that you can move on quickly and easily if the first room you want is no longer available. Once you choose your roommate, if applicable, you will be able to select a building with an available room of the configuration you are searching for. When you see the room you want, just click on it, confirm the room selection, and you're done! Your room assignment will appear on the screen with your selected roommate(s). Once you select a roommate and room, your roommate is also assigned to that room and will be unable to choose a different room. After you select a room, you are bound by that selection and will be unable to change it.

Does CC have gender neutral Housing?

Gender Neutral housing is recognized at Colorado College. Students interested in gender-neutral housing should contact Housing Manager, Anneke Bruwer, to secure and confirm housing assignments that meet your needs (i.e. Access to all-gender restrooms on designated floor/floor sections, etc.).

What if I require housing accommodations due to a disability-related reason (e.g., accessible housing, access to a kitchen or single-use bath, visual alarm)?

Please contact the office of Accessibility Resources (719) 227-8285; Armstrong Hall, Room #211; In order to allow sufficient time for the College to evaluate and respond to requests for accommodations and to work with Housing timelines, please meet with Accessibility Resources no later than February 17 to discuss the request. Accessibility Resources and Housing will carefully consider each request for accommodations on a case-by-case basis to ensure that students with disabilities have equitable access to the College's housing resources. Offers for students approved for ADA accommodations will be emailed in March.

What if I don't have computer access or won't be on-campus during my room selection time slot?

If you will not have computer access during the room selection time slot assigned to you or if you will be unable to complete any of the other processes associated with room selection, it is your responsibility to designate another student as a "proxy" to act on your behalf. Proxy authorizations must be completed as part of the online housing registration process or by submitting a completed form to the Housing office. Emailed authorizations are also acceptable. Proxy information should be turned in prior to March 30th. No one will be allowed to select a room for you unless we have a record that the specific individual is serving as your proxy.

Information your proxy must have in order to select your room:

  • The name(s) and six-digit ID number(s) of your preferred roommate(s), if applicable
  • Your building and room choices (you should provide at least three in the order in which you desire that space).
  • The specific room selection time slot to which you've been assigned

Your proxy will not be able to log into the room selection website to choose a space for you, instead, they should come to the Housing Office during your designated time slot.

I plan to study abroad for the Fall 2022 semester. Should I still complete the housing application?

If you believe you will be studying abroad for the fall 2022 semester, you will still need to complete the housing agreement online in preparation for your return to campus housing in the spring. It is also important that you complete the online room preference information so that we are aware of your housing preferences as we begin to make room assignments for the spring 2023 semester. However, you will not go through the room selection process this spring.

I won't be 18 years old before completing the housing agreement, does a parent/guardian need to complete the application for me?

If you are not 18 before you complete the housing agreement, your parent/guardian will also need to complete a housing agreement for you before you can participate in room selection or be assigned to a room. You can download it from our website or come to our office for a paper version. You should still submit the online version by the deadline.

What will happen if I do not participate in the room selection process?

If you do not participate in the room selection process and are not granted off-campus approval, you will still be assigned a room over the summer by Housing unless you are going abroad or taking a leave of absence in the fall. You must still complete the On-Campus Housing Agreement.


My time slot is incorrect, what should I do?

If you believe you have received an incorrect time slot, please contact our office. If you are aware that you have semesters that have not transferred, you will need to provide proof of those before we can issue a new time slot. Since time slots are generated randomly, you will not be penalized if your time is adjusted.

May I live off-campus?
