Recovery Housing

Recovery housing is made possible through a partnership between the Collegiate Recovery Program and the Office of Housing & Residential Education. Recovery Housing is on-campus housing intended specifically for students pursuing recovery from substance use who would be best served by a community that is dedicated to a supportive recovery lifestyle. Priority for this community will be given to those applicants who demonstrate a dedication to their own recovery and the recovery of others.

Recovery Housing is located in Mesa Apartments. If available spaces are not initially filled with those who meet these priority criteria, students who are dedicated to a substance-free lifestyle and seek to be involved with the Collegiate Recovery Community as allies will be considered. To apply for recovery housing contact 303-871-3699 or email
