In the fall of 2014, Colorado State University opened Laurel Village, two brand-new residence halls on the north side of campus. Laurel Village houses 615 undergraduate students, including 400 students in the College of Natural Sciences Learning Community.
The two residential buildings feature numerous amenities and a variety of room styles that students can request, including air-conditioned single and double rooms with community, private, or shared baths, and multiple price points. View the possible room choices here.
All of the buildings in Laurel Village are arranged to integrate academics into living areas and to facilitate meetings, interactions among community members and support for students. 20,000 square feet of academic program space includes:
- an academic commons with two fully-equipped science classrooms,
- offices for faculty members, academic support coordinators, and the director of the College of Natural Science Learning Community,
- an outdoor classroom and an outdoor amphitheater.
In addition, Laurel Village is only steps away from the newly-remodeled Durrell Center for dining, Moby Arena, and the campus recreation center.
A third building, called the Pavilion, provides lounge and meeting spaces for students. The Pavilion also includes space to showcase student and faculty work as part of the annual Art & Science Exhibition.
The Pavilion is pursuing the first LEED Platinum certification building on campus. It features sustainable and local products, as well as innovative energy-saving features, including a katabatic tower. CSU’s Eco Leaders have their offices in the Pavilion.
