Summer Housing

During the summer months, Mines welcomes students and other individuals to live in our residence halls. Living in Mines Summer Housing provides a great way to experience Golden during the summer. Mines residence halls provide a safe, comfortable, and convenient place to call home while you’re in Golden or in the Denver metro area. Mines residence halls are located in one of the most relaxing and vibrant towns in Colorado. Weaver Towers is located conveniently on-campus and located near the Rocky Mountains and public transportation to get to downtown Denver.
