Due to COVID-19, our application and leasing timeline may be longer than than the usual 2 to 3 weeks. Houses will not be conducting house tours until further notice.

Summer 2020* and Fall/Spring applications are being accepted now.

*Doubles will not be offered in Summer 2020. Pearl and Taos will be closed for Summer 2020.


College Houses is a democratically-managed non-profit organization with a small staff. Our democratic processes set us apart from other housing options, but they also add complexity you may not encounter elsewhere. Unlike leasing at a standard, for-profit apartment complex, our free application process requires more time and flexibility from you, the applicant. Please understand that all timelines given for application and contract processing are subject to change based on holidays, office closures, or the need to address emergencies that arise with individual students or facilities.

Before you can request a contract from College Houses, you must be approved for membership. Your Membership Application (below) will be sent to the house(s) and voted on by the members. The application process can take up to 3 weeks. Once the houses have voted, we will compile your results and send you a Membership Results Letter, along with a contract request form. The leasing process typically takes another 1-2 weeks from the date you request your contract. Availability is subject to change throughout your application and contract request process.

Please read through the entire Membership Application carefully, as it contains detailed information about our housing and your contract options. You will receive a confirmation email once you have submitted the application.
