COVID-19: Updates and Resources

We understand this is an uncertain time, and the Student Care Center is here to support you. To discuss your housing situation and needs, please contact the Student Care Center by calling 303-615-0006, emailing [email protected] or filing a CARE Referral so that a case manager can follow up with you.

The Department of Health and Human Services has taken action to temporarily halt residential evictions to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

Housing and Commuter Resources

The Housing and Commuter Resources website is a tool for MSU Denver students, staff and faculty.

Metropolitan State University of Denver is a non-residential commuter campus. This means we do not provide on-campus housing to our students. As a result, finding an apartment or house near campus is probably one of the first things you will want to do after being admitted to MSU Denver.

On this site, you can find answers to questions about the following:

  • Off-Campus Housing
    • Finding a Roommate
    • Local Housing Options & Hotels, Hostels and Rentals
    • Property Management Companies
    • Emergency Housing
    • Affordable and Subsidized Housing
  • Transportation
    • RTD System
    • Driving and Parking on Campus
    • Alternative Transportation
  • Resources
    • Things to Consider when Searching for an Apartment or House
    • Renter’s Rights and Tenant Laws
    • Signing a Lease
    • Utilities
    • Renters Insurance Guide
    • Legal Services/Advice
    • Denver Neighborhood Guide
  • Frequently Asked Questions

This website provides a list of housing options and resources for students, staff and faculty to consider as they look for a place to live. As MSU Denver does not offer campus housing, we’re happy to provide this website to aid the MSU Denver community so they can continue their Roadrunner careers with the best chance for success.

Beyond these online resources, students who need emergency housing can schedule an appointment with a case manager in the Student Care Center by calling 303-615-0006 or visiting Tivoli 311. We’re here to help!
