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 Colorado School of Mines. 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.

For the first-time, Mines Residence Life is excited to offer undergraduate sophomore students three on-campus housing options during the 2020-2021 academic year. Students that will be sophomores next year may apply to live in our newest residence – 1750 Jackson, a dedicated sophomore wing of Maple Hall, or Mines Park Apartments. Students interested in living in 1750 Jackson and Maple Hall will also have the opportunity to request to live in a neighborhood near 11 friends!
