Residence Life will be announcing new housing configurations and processes for the coming school year as soon as possible. We will update our website and communicate these changes via email to inform all students as changes are determined and if any actions are needed. Please continue checking your Mines email and this website for more details and housing information to come.

Sophomore Housing:

If you are going to be a second-year undergraduate during the 2020-2021 academic year, please contact housing@mines.edu for sophomore housing availability in the new 1750 Jackson or Maple Hall. The application for Mines Park Apartments is currently available through the housing portal on Trailhead.

Lottery Process

An application does not guarantee housing.

Applications: All completed applications that are submitted with a paid $50 application fee during the designated application timeframe will receive first priority in the housing lottery. You may submit your application through the Housing Portal through your Trailhead account (Campus Life Tab > Housing & Residence Life > Residence Life Housing Portal link). The time you submit your application has no bearing on the lottery as long it is submitted during the application timeframe (dates and times provided above).

Lottery Selection & Housing Offers: Housing will be offered based on a lottery selection process starting the week after the application closes. Housing offers will be emailed to applicants selected through the lottery process and must be accepted or rejected within two business days. If you accept a housing offer and agree to the student housing agreement within the housing portal, you are responsible for all charges associated with that room/unit for the designated contract dates. You are no longer eligible to request an application fee refund once you are offered housing.

Waitlist: Once housing is full, applicants that have NOT been selected/offered housing during the initial lottery process will be added to a waitlist. Applicants on the waitlist will remain eligible to receive a housing offer through the lottery selection process through spring and summer 2020.

Waitlist Removal & Application Fee Refund Requests: If an applicant has not received a housing offer and no longer wishes to remain eligible for a housing offer, they may request to receive their $50 application fee refund, cancel their application and be removed from the housing waitlist.

A request for an application fee refund can be submitted via the Application Fee Refund Request Form.

If eligible and approved to receive an application fee refund, Residence Life staff will prepare the paperwork and submit to the refund to the Cashier’s Office within 5 business days. Please allow up to 14 business days for the $50 to be refunded to your credit card statement or debit account.

Refund requests are no longer accepted 180 calendar days after the initial date of payment.
