Residence Life

Northeastern strives to make college life a positive and knowledge building experience!

Northeastern’s residence halls provide the opportunity for students to live in an academic-based community. As the largest residential two-year college campus in Colorado, the chances to meet new people are endless. Living on campus allows students to build new friendships, gain a strong support system during their college career (and often after college as well), and live close to classes and resources available on campus.

The Residence Life program is committed to providing each resident with a living-learning environment that promotes personal, academic and social growth within a safe, well maintained and caring community.
