CU Housing Accommodation

Basic Information

For those interested in a cheaper accommodation option on CU’s campus – not just students – “grown-ups” too!

Here is some information sent from the coordinators – PLEASE READ ME if you haven’t yet for vital check-in and check-out information!

Where? Williams Village – walking distance (1 mile, 20 mins) to the MOP meeting. Directions here.

  • There are also buses (the BOUND will be your best option during the summer).

What? While called a “dormitory” in US language – these are actually separate bedrooms. A MicroFridge (microwave, refrigerator, freezer unit) is provided in each room. But you need to share bathrooms (separate for men and for women).

  • Here’s photos of the room, meeting areas, lobby, and bathrooms. Note that every room and bathroom is different, but hopefully this gives you a good idea of what to expect.

When? Check-in from 3-5PM on Sunday July 8th, check-out before 8-10AM Saturday July 14th in WILLIAMS VILLAGE NORTH. There is also an option to check in a day early, Saturday July 7th, for an extra $38.50. This would also have a check-in period from 3-5PM.

Check in is at the Sterns East front desk during these registered times, and there will also be attendants during regular business hours to help you. If you need to check in at other times, please contact Fran.

Meals? Dinner on Sunday, breakfast + dinner Monday – Thursday, breakfast Friday. Meals not listed are not included (such as Friday dinner + Saturday breakfast).

How much?  $350 for the whole week. Yes!

Deadline?  We need rooms booked and paid for by 18th of June.
