In the middle of it all

Living on campus, you're in the center of all the action. Staying in CSU’s Global Village Learning Community or Westfall Hall will allow you to be surrounded by friends from around the world. Get to know your neighbors, improve your English proficiency and enjoy the unique American university experience. Everything is within walking distance from your classrooms. Still concerned? Don’t be. Our amazing housing staff members are available 24 hours a day to help you feel welcomed, involved and connected.

The basics and more

Wondering about whether you should live on campus or not? There are a few things you should know. First, undergraduate Pathway students under 21 years old are required to live on campus in the Global Village learning community. Students in other programs may choose where to live but you do have the option to live in an on-campus residence hall. 

When you live on campus at CSU, your spacious room includes a bed, desk, chair, and closet space for both you and your roommate. We don’t want you to have to go shopping for linens when you arrive, so we provide you with sheets, pillows, pillowcases, blankets and towels. The residence halls are secure and have locked doors to help you feel safe. You will also have access to study rooms, lounges, kitchens, laundry facilities and multiple nearby dining halls. The residence halls are all alcohol-free and tobacco-free, with nearby parking lots.

If you're an Undergraduate Pathway student, you will live in Parmelee Hall and participate in Global Village. If you're a Graduate Pathway or English language student, then you may live in Westfall Hall, and you can choose from four different room styles.

Off-campus Life offers many services for students who are not living in CSU housing: Plan to begin your search before you arrive because it can be difficult to find housing off campus.

You have options

The Global Village at Parmelee Hall is a newly renovated, suite-style residence hall. You would have a spacious double room shared with one roommate and an attached ensuite bathroom that you share with three other people.

At Westfall Hall, there are four different room layouts to choose from: a single room, standard double room (2 beds), extended single room (1 bed) or a corner double room (2 single bedrooms with a shared common room). There are gender-specific community bathrooms on each floor with multiple sinks, showers and toilets. 

If living off-campus suits you best, we can help you find a place and give you all the information you need to settle in quickly. For more detailed services, you can visit Off-Campus Life .

Family and temporary housing

If you are traveling to Fort Collins with your immediate family, send an email to: [email protected] to ask about your options. There may be limited options so begin this process at least one month before you arrive.

If you arrive before the assigned move-in date for your program, or if you do not reserve housing prior to arrival, you will need to make temporary arrangements to stay in a hotel until you can move into the residence hall.
