Welcome to Housing and Residential Education at DU!

COVID-19 Updates

The university has created a FAQ page regarding housing for the 2020-2021 academic year and what that will look like.

Updates for Housing-specific policies and procedures can be found on our website and can check the Isolation and Quarantine Information page for any students who are moved into those spaces. Additionally, students who are experiencing financial hardships or are in need of additional resources during this time can visit the Student Outreach & Support website.

Important Events and Announcements

Roommate Selection

Finding a roommate is a fun and exciting time for students! Students who do not request a roommate will be paired with someone based on their identified preferences they provided in their application. Deadlines for roommate pairing for the 21-22 year will be announced at a later date.

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.

Summer Conference & Event Housing

If you are looking for rates, or want to talk with someone about booking your conference or event over the summer season, please visit the Conference and Event Services page.

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.
