A New Home for First-Year Students
Opened in Fall 2020, the Dimond Family Residential Village is DU’s newest and most innovative residential hall. This transformative new building features more than 250 rooms, which—at capacity—will house more than 500 first-year students. Housing is divided into six different “houses,” which contribute to the formation of student cohorts—a concept known to foster long-term engagement and success. 21 “pods,” each containing more than 20 rooms and a lounge, along with a dozen common rooms, study spaces and the Village Kitchen, round out the four-story complex.
The design and philosophy behind this building are crafted to instill a sense of belonging, which in turn supports our students’ persistence as they pursuer knowledge, understanding and self-actualization, the hallmarks of a transformative, impactful education.
