Centennial Towers

Shared by First-Year and Second-Year Students


Centennial Towers, often known simply as Towers, is a pair of high-rises made up of suites assigned to first year students. Located on the north end of campus, Towers is close to the Richie Center athletic facilities, as well as Interstate 25 and the light rail station. Towers is the only residence hall open for first-year students during the winter break.

Each 450-square-feet suite includes two 145-square-foot bedrooms and a shared bathroom and kitchen. Kitchens are equipped with a refrigerator and stove, as well as a kitchen table and chairs.

In addition to the double-room option, there are some triple-room options available. All furniture, including a built-in closet, provided in the double-room option will be provided in the triple-room option as well.
