Mines Park

About Mines Park Apartments

Mines Park is an apartment complex that was built to provide convenient, affordable housing for the expanding Mines community. The complex has apartments for both single upper-class (second-year and above) undergraduate students, graduate students, and families. There are one, two, and three-bedroom units for single students (individual bedrooms) and one and two-bedroom units for families. The Apartments at Mines Park are located at the southwest corner of 6th Avenue and 19th Street, at the base of Mt. Zion – only a 10-minute walk to campus.

Mines Park Apartments - Academic Year 2023-2024

The university plans to bring renovations and construction to the Mines Park community, including apartment facelifts, new buildings, and renewed community spaces. These plans require that some of our buildings be empty by June of 2023 so that construction may begin. As a result, there will not be a designated housing for second-year students, international students, and sophomore transfer students in Mines Park for next academic year.

Applications CLOSED
Housing availability at Mines Park is extremely limited for the 2023-2024 academic year due to planned renovations.
 

The Mines Park Apartments application is now closed, as of April 20, 2023. Residence Life performed two lottery selections and communicated housing offers to those selected. The housing offers have been accepted, and we are now at capacity in Mines Park for the 2023-2024 academic year.

If you are still searching for housing, we encourage you to use our Off-Campus Housing Resource webpage as a good starting point for finding housing off campus.
