Naropa University Residence Life and Student Housing exists to support students with their on-and off-campus housing needs. Living on campus can and has proven to be an integral part of a student's journey. The University operates Snow Lion Residence Hall, an apartment-style, fully furnished residence hall and our newest residence hall 2333 Arapahoe. Both of our halls are places where students are supported with curricular and co-curricular programs through our Living and Learning communities, as well as educational and social opportunities that foster personal and academic success. While all members of the Naropa student body have the option to apply for housing at any of our two residence halls, we do require certain students to live on campus.
Why Live on Campus in our Residence Halls:
What does it mean to live on campus? Well, it’s a lot more than having a place to sleep. It’s your home while you’re here. The place where you hang out with friends. Talk to your roommates. Study. Kick back. Relax. Store your stuff. Sleep. Eat. It’s your own space. The place that says something about who you are, what you like, and what's important to you.
New this year:
Graduate students can contract to live on campus for a full 12 months in Snow Lion. They have the option to live in a fully furnished apartment with a kitchen, living, dining and bedroom furniture and the amenities of laundry, wireless internet, meditation room and many other options. Please access the housing application site for more information.
