Spruce Hall

Opened in the Fall of 2020, Spruce Hall is Colorado School of Mines’ newest residence hall for first-year students! The community offers single, double, and triple occupancy rooms in a traditional-style (i.e. shared, communal restrooms) setting. Residents of Spruce Hall share all-gender, communal bathrooms located on every floor. All restrooms feature a bay of shared sinks with single-stall showers and toilets, made private with gap-free, no sightline partitions and doors. 

  • First-Year Residence Hall
  • 370 students
  • Co-ed communal-style community – rooms are typically single-gender and floors are co-ed
  • Single, double, and triple occupancy rooms
  • All-gender communal restrooms on each floor
  • Community kitchens, social lounges, and study areas located on each floor
  • Laundry room on basement level
  • 2 large conference rooms on main level

The lower level/basement of Spruce Hall offers a ping pong table, a foosball table, vending and ice machines, lounge seating, a fireplace, flat screen TVs, and a large laundry room. Just up the stairs on the lobby level of Spruce Hall, students have access to more lounge seating, 2 study/conference rooms, a community kitchen, a flat screen TV, and the Spruce Hall Front Desk where students can check out board games, recreational equipment, and more!

The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th residential floors provide 2 study rooms, 2 small active lounges, and 1 larger active lounge. Students can also find respite seating areas at the ends of the hallways for solo study areas. All study rooms are equipped with televisions and whiteboards. The small active lounges feature lounge seating, televisions, microwaves, and sinks; while the larger active lounges offer full kitchens, whiteboards, televisions, and lounge seating.

The 5th floor (smaller than those below it) features 1 study room and 1 large active lounge. This floor of Spruce is home to the Gender Inclusive Housing. A first-year student who wishes to live in a gender-inclusive room (a room that is not defined by the genders that reside within the same living space) may opt into the opportunity through the housing application.

Student rooms feature color-changing and dimming lights that students may control. Rooms are accessed via keyless entry with the use of Blastercards and magnetic door holders allow students to easily prop their doors open to the rest of their floor community.

Outside of Spruce Hall, students can enjoy courtyard green space, an outdoor fireplace, and grill. Partnering with the Student Recreation Center and Sodexo Dining, Spruce Hall is also home to the Motion Lab Fitness Center and the Zime bakery and café.
