Important Events and Announcements

Graduate Student Housing 

We are excited to be able to offer on-campus housing options for graduate students for the 2020-2021 academic year! For information about prices please visit our 20-21 Rates page. Students who are interested in being placed in on-campus housing should fill out the housing application for the 20-21 academic year, and can expect an email from the Housing team around the end of April/early May letting them know if a placement was made, location of the placement, and any other important information regarding deadlines, move-in dates, etc.

Students who have further questions or would like more information can view our Graduate Student Housing poster, our informational quick-sheet, or contact the Housing & Residential Education office at 303.871.2246 or [email protected], or they can visit us in Nagel Hall, 136 during our business hours (Monday - Friday 8 AM - 4:30 PM) if they are in the area.

Roommate Selection

Finding a roommate is a fun and exciting time for students! If you find someone you would like to room with for the 2020-2021 academic year, please make sure to have your roommate request completed in the housing application by Monday, June 29th. Students who do not request a roommate will be paired with someone based on their identified preferences they provided in their application.  

Want to know a little more? Take a look at this article that discusses the ways HRE works to assist students in the roommate selection process and navigating how to live with a roommate.

themed communities

Housing & Residential Education offers two themed Living Communities for students to join during their second year. Our All Gender Community, housed in Nelson, aims to cultivate a dynamic community for students to engage with peers, allies, and advocates who wish to live in a mixed sex/gender living environment.

Our GlobalRes Community, housed in Nagel Hall, is a themed living community designed for students who wish to live in a culturally diverse environment. The community will include DU students from diverse backgrounds as well as a Graduate Coordinator and Resident Assistant who will provide engaging cultural learning opportunities for students on a monthly basis.
